The AR 5 designer pilot found with his 582 that on descents with the throttle closed his engin would run hot. His solution was a hand primer pump to put additional fuel into the engine. Apparently the idle lean condition was the fault he could not correct in carb adjustments.
THe AR5 was a very clean design that was flown to speed records.

Good luck
