    After just a few hours, a brand new X charger will drop to right around 7 pounds.

    Make sure you are holding the Correct parts & Nuts with the correct tools & Torque the 10 MM hex Nut with RED loctite to 22 FT. if it is lubed properly it will test 160-170 inch lb, Will break into 140-150 in about 4 hrs riding. This is my experience when installing the latest shaft & washer kit.

    No way will a brand new oem kit originally set up at 160-170 inch lbs. Your numbers are way off! You need to replace your Harbor Freight torque wrench!

    Not looking for Boost (I do not have a gauge) Looking for clutch slip break away torque.

    That is slip torque, not boost pressure.

    Usually on a brand new rebuild,set up the OEM way, you'll see slip somewhere around 100 inch lbs....on an X-charger I try to preload it at around 145 inch lbs....This means playing with washer configuration to achieve this...

    I just rebuilt my father's T-X charger a few weeks ago, with 112 hours on it (never been out) it was slipping at 91 in/lbs when I removed it...After the rebuild with factory spring washer orientation, it only slipped at 116...I played with the configuration, ended up with ALL McMaster's in there, and got it to sit at 152....PERFECT.
