Another Metal Washer question???
So how often do you guys suspect there will need to be either a shim put in or an adjustment on the clutch? How are you guys going to make those adjustments without having a good torque wrench? Is the craftsman I have going to be good enough to make these adjustments or will it have to be sent to Jerry everytime it starts to slip??? Also, please feel free to talk about up coming naked partys out on rivers, lakes and oceans this summer in this thread. lol

Probably 50+ hours for the average rider and you can throw a shim in to tighten things back up.

But do you need an expensive torque wrench Jerry??

while we're on the subject.....where to pick up some shims?

You need a good dial type torque wrench to accurately measure the slip moment. You don't need the top of the line version, but you do need to spend some dough to get a good one. The $49 - $99 click type wrench isn't accurate enough for this application IMO.

yup...but don't forget you want an in/lbs not ft/lbs to check slip moment

Yes, those are the types you need. I would opt for the 0-300 in/lb version because I think it is more accurate at the lower readings than the 0-600 in/lb version.

I think Jerry said he was going to start stocking shims. But I don't see them in the online store.
