recently i've seen a couple comments regarding full groove mains being 'old tech' or just not stylish lately... i did a quick search but didn't find the referenced MME Mark comments, possibly on another forum?
i just don't get why shutting off the oil flow to the rod bearings 50% of the time can be considered a Good Idea ?
when i picture the scene 4th dimensionally i'm seeing the oil columns in the crank drillings Pulsing rather than flowing smooth & constant. any time you interupt something it takes time & energy to re-establish, so the ON time of the oil column may be significantly less than 50% ?
the original Recipe for the Cleveland included full groove main bearings, at least on the higher output rated versions. possible the 2V's maybe even the base 4V's came with 1/2 grooves?
but it don't make no sense to me, rod bearings need oil man
there'll be phantoms, there'll be fires on the road... and the white man dancing
