    X Charger checked slip

    I had a chance to pull my X charger while it was easy to get to with everything else out,
    According to my Dial type Snap-on Torqometer it is slipping at 115-118 inch pounds,

    It has about 15-20 hours on it, and I made sure I went around at least 2 full turns counter clockwise,
    I had bought the McMaster Carr washers just in case,

    Does that slip seem OK for the X charger?

    The McMaster washers had a Maryland Precision/Rolex spring part number of SAM-281415 on the pouch,
    I called them and they said you can buy 200 pcs for $0.50 each or $100.00 minimum,

    Thanks,

    Now is a good time to replace the stock seal with the Viton seal, and re-set the slip to approximately 140 in/lbs. Just order whats needed from Jerry's store.......

    I checked a new X charger right out of the box and it had 95 in. lbs. The used x charger this 1 replaced had 85. I reset the new 1 to 125 before I installed it.

    125 is still to low...youll want a min of 135 inch lbs....If this were me and it had brand new clutches i would pre-load the slip to about 150 inch lbs..this way when it breaks in it should fall to about 135-140 inch lbs...

    15.5ft/lbs for that x charger seems quite high if you are only turning stock rpms.......

    If slip is set low you wont boost what you should be doing right?
    what happens if you have your slip set very high?
