Do u no wts mains bearings,bigends bearings nd a silender head are

and what is more important I know how to spell them all
main bearings are the bearings situated in the block that supports the crankshaft
big end bearings are the bearings that run on the crank shaft crank pins and are situated in the connecting rod large(big)ends
Cylinder head or head is fitted at the top of the bore or cylinder in which the piston moves to give compression for the engine operation
all this is found in a basic engine construction book from your library

Want to replace main and bigend brgs

Sewing machines don't have main or big end bearings. But, an internal combustion engine does. To replace them you will need to strip the bottom end of whatever engine you are having problems with.

How long does a big end bearing in a 2003 ford

Do you mean a main bearing/ If so it sounds as if it was bad before you bought it unless you over rev'd the motor. The main bearings other than from over reving do't usually go just like that.
