Its not the out-of-stock excuse you should be worried about Mark. Insist on NOS synchros only. The situation mimics the lack of sound a/market main/rod bearings and lifters of the recent past. The cu

It seems to me that Rockwell testing does not take into account the "depth" of hardening. The dimple test does not probe further than a ten-thous or so below the surface. Eg, chilled and nitrided ma
