Clearly that is not the correct way to use shims. Be sure to remove them and install them properly.

Ok, on second glance I do infact see 2 Shims in places. That I would not do is stack shims., but I believe they did this to achieve certain slip with the SPring washers. NOT the best way. But the dang Rude 3 requires such a high slip.
I do see the fact that they are not the newest washers also.

Don't really see an issue with stacking the spring washers that way and the new McMaster washers are not the same thickness anymore so its difficult to achieve 18-19lbs. Looks like (())( with the nut un the left. Going to (())) might tigten it up so shims would not be needed if L washer hasn't been sanded.
If your going to be in very rough water conditions you might consider the 2011 Clutch washers. Gold work great for us in our conditions and hold slip better.
The 2011 shaft are not pressed as tight together and its very easy to move the collar on the shaft over 16lbs of slip. We have been drilling and pinning any of the 2011 shafts and 2008 if running over 18.

This charger had 19 ft/pound when received as soon as I tested on my ski it was on 14 pound of boost at 8300, when took the S/C out of the ski to re- check torque the slip it was on 15 ft/pound of torque.
I do not trust those gold washers at old, I waiting for the ET washers to receive.
The RXPX 2012 was test on lake in a flat water.
Up to this point the golden washer from SEADOO used on all 08 plus should no be used on bigger charger regardless of water condition, it will not hold.

I'll look in to it but I will be replacing the gold washer regardless, never had issues with the ET washers.
I'll take pictures once I install the ET washers.
Also the shaft has some play as well, the my ET137 charger does not have that play at all, I wonder if who ever install did checked the play on this charger and are able to re-check.

We have hundreds of hours on the gold washers pushing 3 Rude and 2 Rude chargers without issue. The 2011 clutch washers can be sanded like Art does and it might not have to be reset.
