Dangit, I'm running the 07 pump.
I've still got my 98 pump though.
I need to get some clear lines for the vent and return lines also.

Looks like initial scuttlebutt was wrong about them disassembling the shop.
I'd take out a loan in a heartbeat for them there machines.
But I may need to start looking for something else.
I hate gearheads....

I'd think if the hole size didn't matter, they wouldn't have changed them.
But we have theorized a bit on the job of the smaller hole, so while I'm here, I just want to see if I can tell any difference.

You're right, flow control is initiated by the umbrellas.
The smaller holes may aid in separation between the umbrella and the outlet or as you say to not overwhelm the chamber.
But within that reasoning, with your bigger holes, wouldn't that underwhelm the chamber?
