I'm interested to see how much material you remove.Decided to up the fuel system while waiting on engine to be completed. Ditching the 255 intank pump and replaced with a walbro 450. Also replacing my dw350 inline aux pump and installing a magnafuel 750 in its place.
Oe spindles removed and working on installing the drag spindles to accommodate the 15's. New milwaukee m18 grinder was delivered yesterday, to help with clearancing for the wheels.

This is the second time I've seen you say this. What makes you think this?Thrust washer? You're referring to the thrust bearing on the mains?
I think a large amount of blame of that issue on manual trans cars is having to start the engine with your clutch depressed and the bearings are dry till oil gets to em.
On Auto cars I know converters can balloon at high internal pressures and dont always stay balooned at rest.
