    Are you referencing the ARP washer mod Quake came up with over at SF, and that Gordon designed the tools for fitment for?

    Good Stuff in here. Good info Pilot and also, way to help out a fellow enthusiast with the sports turbo catch.
    Congrats Ken. Really want to hear & see a run file on this car once she is back to life again.

    Actually that is a good mod but it has since been disused further that it's actually the washer size that is important. The Quake mod that does the insert fixes the problem as well but from discussion it seems the larger washer does a even better job to spreading the load.

    Oh awesome, do you have a link to the larger washer discussion by any chance?

    The reason I ask is I purchased the reamer tool Gordon made from Gordon, so will be doing the insert washer mod, but that plus the larger washer would be double security

    Oh nice thread. Never read it but will read it even though the idea is the same with the 2j and 7m.

    I don't it was actually posted on face shit and they blocked me due to not using my real name. Then they ask for an ID and all that BS so Ill have to start another account it seems.

    Anyhow it was a larger washer from ARP then what comes in the kit. As you can see from the 2j guys they are having HG problems now once the washer sinks in and the torque is lost.

    IF you do the head insert and put another washer it won't help. The insert being smaller will still dig in first. According to the 7m guy on face shit the larger washer that maxes out the space is the best bet. Now if ARP made the insert head wider then that can also work and better but I don't think they have one maybe which is why they go with a wider washer?
