Re: Diving into dual IDFs for the first time..

Sounds like you are heading in the correct direction …. as a rhetorical question … didn't the Euro 124 with 1608's and IDF's use a mechanical pump ? In my reality, I ran dual IDF's with the mechanical pump, from 1988 to about 2005 … ran quite well , and adding the 00 bleed back's cured the "stumble"...
