    Checking slip

    Guys,

    Pulled my charger from 2005 rxp to check the washers. What is the method of checking he slip whilst the charger is off. Which bit is held in the vice? I have the plate for mounting the charger and the variety of spanners. I then set my torque wrench low (5 nm) and turn the nut on the compressor wheel ain't clockwise as you look at it. Wrench will click, then up the nm one by one until it doesn't click and turns shaft. Sound about right?

    Mount the charger in the mounting plate with the 3 s/c bolts. Secure the plate in a bench vice. Hold the gear with the gear holding tool, then ideally you want to use a dial type torque wrench to turn the rear shaft nut clockwise until it slips. The maximum torque before it turns is your slip moment. The manual says to turn the shaft a few times to disperse any oil that is coating the clutch components in order to get a correct reading. It doesn't matter if you use the front or rear nut, just a lot of torque wrenches only work going clockwise.

    Thanks for that, when you say the gear holding tool is that the largest size spanner and it fits on the flats nearest the clutch washers?

    You can also use Channel-lock pliers (or similar) to told the gear.

    That's 65 inch lbs, which is low. Should be around 100-110 inch lbs.

    Throw a shim in there and you will get the slip up where it should be.
