    does my sc still have the ceramic washers? pics attached

    Took my supercharger out to inspect if metal washers have been installed. If not I'm sending to jerry for rebuild. I attached some pics , hopefully someone can tell whether they are ceramic or rebuilt with metal washers. By the way, not sure if you can tell by using a magnet , and if so do the ceramic washers attract to the magnet. I'm new to the jet ski scene. Any help would be great!

    Take a close up of just the clutch area. Jerry is on vacation until Wednesday but will be back building these on the same day.

    How thick do you consider thick????And since when does that make them NOT metal??have you seen the Riva Clutch washers??They are thick..so are the old style GH washers when he sold them...SO thick has nothing to do with being metal or not...These almost have that dull grey color of ceramics..obviously this Scer has not been rebuilt lately also...look at the thrust washer,it is still the 04/05 OEM style with no flange...im betting they are still ceramics....

    You believe they are still ceramic? A magnet attracted to the washers, but hey that could be a bogus test I was using

    From the color, and the way your clutch assembly is of OEM parts,im thinking that they are still ceramic....NOT unless somebody just replaced clutch washers awhile ago..Metal clutches are a light grey or gold in color and ceramics are a dull grey,as yours..IF they are ceramic they will not be attracted to a magnet......if they do attract to the magnet then they are metal....

    They attracted to a magnet. I don't know, maybe I will still send in for rebuild as maybe just washers were replaced. The ski has 76 hrs, so better safe than sorry I suppose
