    It does sound like it is slipping somewhat..65 inch lbs is a tad on the low side..You want the slip set to be up around 90 inch/lbs...Like dolla had stated,your Scer does not have clutch washers so you cannot just replace them...You can try to tighten your slip up with some shims or McMAster Carr washers BUT with 80 hours on your Scer your about do for a rebuild...the new rebuild kits come with everything needed to rebuild it including the new steel clutches....

    Either it is not a stock 185 hp ski, or you never saw 70 mph. A stock 185 should be at 62 mph at 7600 rpm. Tell us what you have. I am going to guess you have a 185 hp ski, and you are experiencing a little cavitation and heat fade for a loss of RPM, giving you the 55-57 mph.
