    Riva Gold Supercharger Washers

    I have 2 set of these that are approx 3 years old. Are they Good or BAD for Replacement supercharger washers? They Do Not have RIVA around the O.D.

    They are an old design washer, but that doesn't mean that they wont work. It might be better if it doesn't have Brand "R" on it...LOL, it might actually work!

    If they are gold they are not Riva washers. More than likely old style OEM washers.

    As stated above they are either OEMS from a few years ago OR Les Cookes.....And depending if they are worn or not would determain if i would use them or not...

    And the gold OEM washers have been known to disintegrate into bits like the ceramic ones. Not as dangerous as bits of ceramic in the oil, but bad nonetheless. And perhaps more dangerous to the cam chain than the ceramic ones....

    I actually prefer these washers...as long as you maintain slip on the charger they are some of the best oem washers.
