Even including burnouts and driving to and from the pits its probably less than 500 WOT miles. But that kind of cyclical operation is far more stressful than say, running an Indy 500 race, stabilized at WOT.1366 passes roughly 341 miles at full throttle... with periodic pauses it must be noted...
I know earlier you said you used a forged crank....ever broke a cast crank? Ever ran one?Even including burnouts and driving to and from the pits its probably less than 500 WOT miles. But that kind of cyclical operation is far more stressful than say, running an Indy 500 race, stabilized at WOT.
That will work. The caps typically break at the peak of the arch.I was thinking about milling the cap down (only where the nut and washer goes) to allow the nut and washer to be used but not sure if it would weaken the cap.

Bolts sent to me (reference pics for part numbers). I used a felpro gasket as they were much thicker and used a small die grinder to take some material off the oil pump (hopefully not enough to cause it to fail. Im going to the hardware store to get 2 washers and a new nut for the pickup as the old one is not the right threads. Hope this helps someone
