    Supercharger slip

    Hello all

    Finally got the gear needed to check the slip on my supercharger (CDI torque wrench and Speedfreak S/C tools)

    Checked slip tonight and it measured a stable 85in/lb after ~30hours

    From what iv read this is lower than ideal (although according to Sea Doo its ok)

    From what iv seen people suggest 120-130in/lb for X charger?

    I don't have any shims or mcmaster washers yet so iv played around with the spring washer
    configuration and the best i can get is 100in/lb, is this acceptable for now?

    Does anyone know where i can get shims in Australia? are they a seadoo item?

    Any other alternatives to increase slip? whats the best spring washer configuration?

    thanks
    Luke

    The spring washer configuration I have seen often is as follows.... Intake side of charger )()() Engine side of charger.

    Luke I might have a few spare shims I can send your way. 100 inch pounds will be fine for now I think - It is a bit low however.

    Will definitely order a set of spring washers and shims from jerry but that will take 2 weeks and id prefer to put it back in and not touch it again for a bit.

    monaroman76: ill send you a pm.

    +1....Have you tried putting them like this yet.....)))() that usually increases the slip pretty good, at least till you can get your Mc Master Carr Washers..You wont need shims with an X charger if your getting the McMAster Carr Spring washers...As they will provide more than enough tension for slip...

    +2--- I used that washer configuration when I was redoing my X charger, Jerry has a ton of experience and lots of helpfull hints,
    you can mix and match new washers with old ones to get the desired slip, I had to use all new McMaster washers to get to 180 inch pounds,

    Just rebuilted my friend x-charger last week-end and even with everything brand new, slip was only at 90 in/lb (kinda weird), tried the )))() position and got 100 in/lb. He ordered some macmasters as well.
