    It depends. You may be able to use all mc masters if it is an 08 shaft with some wear on the gear and washers. Otherwise you will need o mix and match.

    u will need to mix and match OEM & McMaster and may need to relieve the L cap that pushes against the washers by sanding it with emery cloth and solvent to get the correct slip once u find a combo that is close but maybe a bit heavy and if i was doing a NEW washers install/rebuild i would set it at 15/16 lb and expect it to drop 2 to 3 lb minimum after break in! good luck!

    if i get that what would be a sensible break in,30mins varied throttle,no flat runs,or longer...then im guessing check it after 3 to 5hrs.....and thanks for the info, it gives me some scope to play with

    Not all rudes are 08s but if you have the oiler hole yours is and also since you have a rebuild kit I assume its 08 also then Reid is correct and you will have to mix and match. I just remebered that you were rebuiding and not just checking/ setting slip. I would also set it around 15lbs prior to break in.

    No problem. Reid had your back on this one. Basicly you want to find the combination of washers that gets you where you want to be or a little higher and like Reid said sand the L cap to fine tune.
