    Hi KTL,

    I was looking for the pdf caster layouts for wheel alignment you posted a while back that don't seem to open anymore. Any chance you could email them to me?

    Many Thanks,

    The #1 thrust bearing (called a "guide bearing" in the factory manuals) width is specified at 28.000 to 28.060mm

    My most recent case sealing job was done with Henry Schmidt's recommended Threebond 1104 & I was very pleased with the results. Works nice & doesn't create too much squeeze out. Only reason I got the 1104 was because I was buying some Loctite Hysol 9340 (JB Weld substitute) from him anyway. You're welcome to use my tubes of 1104 & 574

    I don't know why 574 is being avoided by people. Works good & is not too quick to set up when you've got all hardware in order. I go back & do the thru-bolt o-rings one at a time after the case is fully torqued & cured overnight. Case sealing process goes quicker w/out handling all those o-rings.

    574 is highly recommended for gluing the main bearing saddles. You may notice the saddles have what looks like machining roughness on them. That's fretting caused by the slight shuffling of the saddles under heavy loading. 574 has some considerable shear strength & helps reduce the shuffling.

    Hi Kevin,

    So, as you are aware, I'm going to move forward and reassemble my 3.6 motor. Chris has offered to provide "coaching" if I get into any issues.

    One thing that I have not decided on is the use of sealants for the motor. I've read all the postings on Pelican where folks have moved away from the 574 anerobic material for sealing the tomb. What are you doing these days. I did ask Chris and he is still using 574. My issue with that is the short cure time of less than an hour once I drop the upper half in place. There is a lot of fasteners and torquing that needs to take place in that short time. I would be nice to use something that seals as well or better with a longer cure time. I guess the other issues are potential damage from loose material that squeezes out into the engine and whether the material squeeses out as thin as 574 in order assure that main bearing clearances are within spec.

    Yep it's still for sale. If you can believe it, it's India/Guards red exterior and black interior. What are the odds of that? :^) Has BBS 16x7/8 blk one piece wheels and F/R factory spoilers.

    Shoot me your email via pm if you'd like more info?

    I saw your signature that says the 87 Carrera is for sale. Is it still for sale and what does it look like?

    Hey Kevin

    Saw your post on 7:31. The prices seem to be all over the place. What's your oninion on what a good 7:31 is worth?

    I did buy one for $300 but haven't seen it yet. I offered a guy 500 for one and he seemed insulted. I am hoping to buy 3 of them.
