In response to Michelle Obenauer.


We run 80 lanes on the 377 using combs from the Gel Co in the 96 lane mode.
You do have to do a significant amount of manual tracking particularly when
you have failed lanes which happens constantly in a core situation.  When
operating in the 96 lane mode, it is looking for a narrower lane and
therefore has trouble tracking weak or blank lanes.  We load manually.  The
spacing on the 80 lane combs is the same as the spacing on the 64 lane.
