This would be my suggestion. Pull the existing floor and then install 2x8 sisters on BOTH sides of the joists, but recess them 3/4. Lay in your 14.5" x 4' strips along each joist cavity. Then come...

I think the only way I could see ONLY a 3/8 subfloor would be if long lengths of 3/4 hardwood flooring was installed as the finished floor. Afterall, it used to be that the wood floor was sat right...

How do you figure? I can see it contributing to the deflection as additional dead load, but it wouldn't be moving. I don't see the deflection as a bad thing unless their is potential for movement and...

If you've got a raised floor (i.e., crawl space) below, why not add an intermediate supporting beam midspan? That'll make it work.

Brent,

Okay, well do post back on what you find, and also find out what deflection the floor was designed to as well.

I think that "industry standards" could be ambiguous, but I'd try to...

It's a big deal. The flange sits on top of the finished floor. It should be much higher. There are ways to make it work in your situation, but it's not right. Once done, it shouldn't leak and you'll...
