    S/C - rebuild question--McMaster clutch washers

    08 shaft on a fresh rebuild.

    I'm getting 210 in/lbs using all McMaster springs.... does this sound right?

    I've read conflicting slip results RE: fresh rebuild using all McMaster washers so any help/advice is appreciated...

    bathe the shaft in oil to get a more precise reading

    heres a free bump, im interested to know as well!

    ive seen where jerry sands some off the round ring piece just before the nut at the end of the shaft. if you didnt want to make a perm. modification like that i could only assume you would use an old oem washer thats slightly thinner then the mcmaster..... that to assumeing you wanted a little less then 210inch #'s

    Actually it seems loose to me.. w/ all the McMaster washers.

    It is bathed in oil... Valvoline20/50 to be exact.

    Seems low to me from what I'v read ----but I can't remember ----if using ALL McMasters should yield a much higher slip..... on and 08 shaft setup??

    I've read that you can't use all McMaster washers otherwise slip will be way too high... but I can't remember if that was 08 shaft and below or all shafts??

    You got to remember that the 08 retaining collar is shorter than previous years..take your old collar and put it on there and youll lock the shaft..

    I agree......100%!


    As long as 210 in/lbs isn't too tight with the McMasters..

    I got a blower with 200 in/lbs and a couple hours later it was LES than 100!
