    Did your engine eat a ceramic supercharger clutch?

    If it did then this is what you will find in your front oil pump screen. This is also what your oil pumps will look like if you continue to run the ski without ridding the ceramic debris from your engine.

    Thats exactly why my first mod will be the steel washers. since my ski is brand new with 0 hrs i should be able to use all the stock hardware, bearings etc., correct? What about a ski with up to 70 hrs on it?

    Did that just happen to your engine??? or is that an old pic?

    Yes, my engine ate a ceramic, and i`ve seen the oil pumps after 24 hours of use, of not removing the debris ...PR...

    They will get that way very quickly and then your engine goes BOOM!

    The pics posted above are after 5 hours use with ceramics in the oil system.

    5 hours of use on the ski altogether or 5 hours after the clutch went?
