The following article lists too much defoamant additive in the original formulation or "sweeting" of the additive package. Amazing that too much defomant would cause foaming! I believe I would switch brands to see if same thing happens. Sometimes the mfg. does make mistakes.

Not being familiar with the EM body, will a LM cross member drop into a EM? And on the disc brakes, why that modification when the original shoes work fine, unless you plan on racing and need to keep the brakes cool?

I believe SDS has the most information available on tuning their specific products. When ever I had a question about tuning I was able to talk to (I believe Mark) @ SDS and get very good suggestions on specifics. If you are not able to record your real time on the fly data, Kevin is correct with having a co-pilot work with you while driving. Some people reading this post may not realize the SD

I'm looking for a 1/18 scale model LM 2 door coupe, plastic or die cast. I can find plenty of the LM convertibles but no coupes. Anyone with information on the availability of this option please let me know.

You ran past the duty cycle of the pump. Don't forget if you are using a battery and the voltage drops the current draw goes up causing extra heat which equals smoke!

"I did detect a faint burning smell this afternoon after simulating an extended cranking session by disconnecting the coil wire." I'm not quite sure what the extended cranking session's objective was for. However you mentioned a slight smell afterwords. The service duty on an older starter will be comparatively short to a new starter. So the smell is the most likely overheating of the field(s)

Anyone have a lead on when, where or if Federal Mogul will release these "fantastic sounding" seats and guides? I believe the new high horse power corvettes are using them as an OEM. Here's what information I have on the product line.

Re-read this document to better understand what a nut is supposed to do. Hopefully someone knows the actual head stud specification so you can choose a proper nut.

You risk the possibility of this style nut many call "prevailing torque" screwing the stud further into the aluminum block. If your studs aren't real tight and the prevailing torque are heavy interference, you may strike out. Like Matt said, tap them out and use them. Use a high speed steel tap and not a carbon steel tap since these are tough more than hard.

I believe the added height of the fingers were a design modification to overcome any potential centrifugal "lock out"/ "lock up", like experienced with the flat finger earlier models.

Normally hydrodynamic thrust bearings have a smooth surfaced rotating member some call the "collar". A fixed non rotating sector shaped disc pad (or pads if thrust is to be realized from both axial directions) is for the distribution of lubricant to the collar. I believe the oil distribution grooves were determined to be non essential due to the application. The oil distribution into the thrus
