    SC thrust washer

    Just rebuilt my SC and noticed just how thin the thrust washer now is, is that something new? It looks almost like a normal washer. I would have thought it should have been as thick as the washer under the impeller wheel dome nut?

    is this right?

    No that doesnt sound right,Ive never seen a thrust washer wear thin..are you sure your talking about the thrust washer and not the clutch washer????The new clutch washers are thinner than past..

    I believe he's talking about the washer that goes against the spacer by the rear bearing.... and yeah, it's nothing special. Doesn't really need to be though.

    Not sure why they just can't make the main spacer the proper length, and eliminate that washer all together

    Unless it's not used on older housings, or something like that?

    Bang on!!

    Thanks. Agree, why can't, and don't they make that part a few thousanths longer in the first place? And to call it the thrust washer??? Maybe to make the rebuild kit sound and look better value for money?!?!

    I've had to use it back on 04 models, so I can't see a time when you would leave it out.
