    GH, when are you too busy for washers?

    Hello GH,
    I am thinking about sending this s/c to you for the washer swap, just not had the nerve to wrench on this 0 hour machine yet. Is sometime this month good? Can you do the ceramic bearings while your at it? Thanks!

    Thanks!

    Is there extra labor cost involved for the bearings?

    I feel this washer thing is too good to be true.....so does the oil filter pick up the metal particles from the washers when they wear?

    I charge $75 for both washer and bearing swap. This price includes return shipping.

    Yes, the oil filter picks up metal particles from all points of wear in the engine. The metal washers are the least of your worries. You have many many other points of metal to metal contact in a internal combustion engine.

    I will try to get it off this week, and send it in. Not sure if I will do the bearings, it's just a rec. boat.

    It took 3hrs to tow one of the board members back due to the s/c bearing. It damaged His flywheel and put metal in the motor. After that I ordered a set, cheap insurance.

    I can spend the extra money for the bearings if you guys really think I should. Like I said though, it's just a rec. boat, but I love to beat the crap out of stuff. PLEASE let me know of any other MUST do's for this 06RXT..

    Honestly, i personally wouldn't replace the bearings until you had 50 or so hours on the ski. If you have the extra money to spend then sure, but its not quite necessary in my opinion.

    aren't the bearings a suggested upgrade if you are running an ECU?
