Mike, your H brgs are for a crank with a generous radius at the bearing surface edge. They will have a bevel on one side or the bearing will just be about .060 more narrow. the P is for a stock crank with little to no radius and full width. the material may be of a different formula too.

X2,that and the RIGHT bearing for your crank/rods is more important than the brand.
