I found out what the TDC pointer rule is. If you have this style of pointer, they must be pinned as apparantly the pointer pin has been known to fall out.

The rules change on heads is going to cost you a good deal of time and money. All seats and any valve job? Wow....Stock has had the same valvejob rules since the beginning. Now they throw that out the window too......And you can add an oil accumulator....that is a good rule. Stock is fading away.......they should change the name to Almost SuperStock. I'm glad I'm out of it.

Why does anyone need an accumulator? If they need one then they have an issue with oil pressure, then they have not done their homework on their oil pan. You can buy a stock looking oil pan from many manufacturers with trap doors and/or baffles that will prevent oil pressure loss when you slam on the brakes or wheelstand. Milodon, Canton and Kevko make these type of pans. Many will make the case that their oil pressure drops during decceleration and the reason why the need the accumulator, but the reality is that it allows for a lower oil level in the oil pan, reducing windage and freeing up horsepower.

Oil Accumulator...I use mine mainly for start-up. Since I drain the water between races, it doesn't get started until just before the next event. The accumulator puts 70# of oil pressure into the motor before starting.

Also, since my motor goes through the lights at 9,700 RPM, I just get a little better feeling knowing there is plenty of oil available, if needed.

Ray...I do not see a problem with a Super Stock car using the accumulator, specially yours with a Comp style engine...however, we are talking about Stock Eliminator cars.
