ask them to do a dealer network search, get the projected stock date, and try a Citroen dealer.

also, if they are a different part number, try the j4 or even j2 part numbers, iirc all the tu5 cranks are the same and the blocks only vary in machining details.

Try your local engine remanufacturers too, one of mine is South Wales Pistons and they can do ACL and king and F-M bearings same day from FPS (trade suppliers) though I've only built xu engines so far.

Some of the widths of the shells vary! I had to file 1mm off mine lol

Back order from my dealer means a few days :P they're a special order part and can't be returned.

Or as above, most local engineering places will probably be able to get or even make some the same day.

Glyco are from the original manufacturer and a sound alternative to genuine.

As sandy said. Glyco is the manufacturer of original bearings and you can basically get them everywhere. All the TU engines have the same size big end bearings (same part numbers too).
