Another SC clutch question.
OK so the other day i pulled the SCs out of 3 skis and in order to check the slip moment i need an inch pounds torque wrench. I looked everywhere but all i could find was a 1/4" drive, inch pounds clicker. I know that there's no way that this could be very accurate since it only measures peak torque but it's all i have right now. Since the slip moment is supposed to be between 62 and 106 inch lbs would it be possible to use a clicker to find what the slip moment is after installing the washers? I don't know who has a dial type inch pounds wrench nor do i have the money for it right now. How often is the slip moment incorrect after you torque the nuts down on the sc shaft? I would rather check the slip moment but like i said i don't have the means to do so right now.

The slip moment will be fine right off the get go. I have never had one slip low with my metal washers. Hint: i make one of the metal washers .008 thicker than stock which is the thickness of a shim. So basically you are shimmed from the get go

josh... you can use the clicker handled torque wrenches... just keep working your way around the different torque specs waiting for the click and u'll be able to find exactly where you are at

Thats good to know Jerry, thanks. I would feel better knowing what the slip moment was but not too worried. On the GTX i didn't check the slip moment and never had a problem.

Here is the torque you will need to check slip on the SC. Now that I have my trailer built for my Sea Doo, it's time to pull out the ceramic washers and go with steel. Another option I am going with is the blow off valve.

Steve, thats exactly what i was going to do it's just more time consuming and probably a little less accurate. I'm not too worried. Right now my main concern is making sure Brian's clutch failure is fixed correctly. He takes it in tomorrow so we'll see. I still can't belive it was fine all the way up until the last minute. I think i even recal hearing the SC whining when we were flushing it after the last ride. So for anyone who think's they're safe with the ceramics or at least just for a little longer, let this be a lesson to you. Change them NOW.
