    My sc washers were still on the shaft.

    I posted the other day about possible sc failure. I took of sc and washers look brand new (ceramic) however they are loose and don't engage. Or at least that's what I think they should do. Are they suppose to be pressed up against the gear that is between them? There is about 1/8 inch play between gear and washers. I hope this is not a catastrophic failure. I decided to fix this my self no matter what is wrong with it even though I have an extended warranty.
    Thanks for a help in advance,
    Jimmy from Houston

    Shibby is right... it don't sound good

    The ceramics are ABOUT 1/16" thick each. If you have 1/8" play they have both exited the scene. Do a search and you'll find tons of information on what to do next.

    Good luck and let us know if we can help.

    I got lucky, when I sent my SC down to Jerry, he reported back that both washers were cracked and about to fall off.........

    Just in the nick of time!!!
