    Swapping RIVA washers

    Is it safe to swap some low hour RIVA washers from one S/C to another provided everything looks normal and the slip is set correctly ? Thanks !!!

    Yes, the new riva washers are very strong. Swap them out if they are the same year charger.

    Speaking of old riva washers...I just pulled out a stageIII charger with the old metal ones, and the back one was cracked (but still on the shaft), AND Guess where the other one went.... Needless to say he's got a lot of work to do ahead of him this weekend.

    ya it wasnt how i thought i would be spending my weekend ...pulling the motor ..it really wasnt as bad as i thought it would be..a couple of hours and it was out and a couple more and had the back cover off ...hidden bolt behind the thermostat kicked my butt for a bit ...

    i bought my riva washers in aug sep 07 they only have about 50 hours on them ..didnt get ridden much when gas was 4 a gal ...thought i was doing a good thing getting rid of the ceramic ones...to avoud this.. so if yours are from that time frame check them

    i found a little over half of it recognizable..other wise i have metal grit and chunks....in the oil catch pan.. surprisingly there was hardly any metal in the oil filter...that worries me ..any suggestions on what i should do to remove the residual grit from inside the motor .. thre has to be some in there and since we dont drain our oil...we suck it out... oil chages arent going to flush them out ...they will sit in the bottom ..afraid eventually the will find there way to a berring and boom ...

    love to go big but my wallet isnt so ...just need to make it ..stay together

    Pull the front scavenger pump assy off the front of the motor,( http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche....e=13&A=149&B=5 ) and clean the screen up there, thats probably where the rest of the big chunks went. As for the little grit, maybe pull the oil cooler off, and clean /blow out, and try to flush the block out with some gasoline, and air. The screens are pretty good at picking up the little stuff if u miss any. Might have to run it , then re check at least the front screen after u get it back together.
