Will this sync the API A2D via Superclock to the digi 002R?

Will this sync the API A2D via Superclock to the digi 002R?

I'm really wanting the API A2D pre/converter, however the user of SuperClock is off-putting, as it isn't supported by my other A/D converter, the Digimax LT.

I'm wondering if this will work:

Connect A2D to 002R via SPDIF and set Pro Tools to sync over SPDIF.
Connect the Lightpipe OUT of the 002R to my Behringer Ultragain.
Connect the Behringer's Wordclock BNC connector to the Digimax LT.
Connect the Digimax LT's Lightpipe out to the 002R's IN.

Theoretically, the A2D should be serving as a master clock source, with it's clock going over lightpipe to the Behringer, to the Digimax and all is good.

Anyone know if this will work?

I don't know if your scenario will work, however I do know that if you stick a MOTU Digital Timepiece in there, it will sync all your pieces + it reads/transmits superclock as well as word 1.
