    OIL SC clutch?

    Anyone with experience with it? Is it the real deal? I smoked another set of washers in 20 laps... they we're set at 144 in pounds after 3 reshims..

    Granted it was VERY rough water...30 mph wind driven white caps with 17 ski's on the track. 20 minutes left to race and it went to -0- boost... still finished 5th? BUT,I think the 'B' SC is too much for the washers. It's either the weight of the wheel or the extra load on the clutches that is tearing it up. The preasure plate was BLUED in spots from the heat?

    Any idea's? Thanks Jeff 404-803-4280

    Jawz, these are the metal washers correct? What happens when they fail? Do they just burn up and lose tension?

    Jeff, are these the coated washers you are using? I pretty much had the same experience with the coated washers. They tend to glaze over and slip.

    There solid not coated. The washer closest to the bevel washers is half the thickness that it is suppose to be. The preasure plate ( Blue in color from heat) bottomed out and still has tension on it. NO drag at all... Free wheeling. There some nickel alloy specially made by one of my competitors.

    I'm thinking about it! I need to know Exactly What machine work needs to be done and where the oil hole needs to be tapped. I do not want to have my ski down for weeks on end. $1K is cheaper than sets of washers at this pace.

    What Larry hasn't figured out yet is he's making them out of the wrong metal.

    PM me your shipping address.

    No, havent had a chance to test your bellville's out yet. Really havent had a need.
