that's what i'm afraid of... what's your front hub/drive set up?

i'm using a steel hub that is essentially an external balance weight that holds the bottom 1/2" pitch

Like a dirt track oil pump drive that drives off of the input shaft on the tranny. that way the load can be carried across the rear main and the transmission bearing.

good luck and keep boosting those Clevos..

Maybe one of these days our wait will be over.

What kind of main caps were you using?

That gives me hope that my block will fare well under similar circumstances. I am working to ship 3 aluminum blocks right now, and waiting for cores for more iron samples.

My cast ductile caps should hold up well (120,000 tensile) and I am looking into machining 90,000 tensile ductile billet caps too.

After MME dynoed the iron blocks I have every confidence in the product design up until now. Hopefully, there will never be any calls telling me someone found the weakness in the design.

It is slow going but slow is better than nothing.
