    rebuilt s/c slip moment

    Hey guys, just finished rebuilding my x charger and added riva washers. My slip seems to be around 13.3 NM or 9.8 ft/lbs. Does this sound about right, and what most others are getting? I was thinking maybe it would be a little higher than this..

    Cheers in advance

    May need a shim. Try to get closer to 12-13ft/lbs.

    How many hours are on the spring washers, bearings, shaft and gear? If they are new than u may try some Mcmaster-carr spring washers, or just add a shim.

    My opinion is to add the Mcmaster spring washers and get the slip over 13lbs. Stock sping washers lose their tension when hot.

    Just put on the mc masters ,you wil be around 16 - 17 nm,the stockers don't have that tension and will loose tension very quik.
    With the mcmasters on you will be fine seadoo spec. slipmoment is at 17 nm,you don't get that with the oem rebuild washers.

    Everything is brand new. Where abouts do i source the mcmaster-carr spring washers? im kind of eager to get the s/c back into the ski. Something about shimming a freshly rebuilt s/c seems wrong to me..
    Is it uncommon for the slip to be this low on a freshly rebuild s/c? im sure i did everything right, i mean i dont have any spare parts

    Also the rebuild kit comes with 3 spacers to put between the s/c housing and the motor. I really dont remember there being spacers in there when i removed it.. or could they have just fallen and i not noticed it?

    Just seen your thread on the mcmaster-carr washers Snoman. Wish i had of known about these when i ordered the rebuild kit and riva washers from Jerry. Dont really want to wait around for the delivery to Aus before i put the s/c back in the ski. Should i just shim it?
