    So If It Moves What Does That Mean??? It Did It Before And The Ski Performed Bad At Crusing Speed And When You Went To Wot It Had Low Boost For A Few Sens. And Then Pick Up And Ran Normal.. So I Thought The Washers Were Slipping.. So I Just Replace Them And Crankit Up And After Shooting It Off With Some Force It Turn Ccw Alittle... So What Is My Problem Now Do Yall Thing?????

    I would think with lots of force you will be able to turn the whole motor around....so, what's you definition of "some force".?

    What washers did you replace? Did you add new spring washers as well? The spring washers set the tension. If you reused the old ones, new clutch washers wont make it tight...

    On a fresh, properly setup supercharger, installed and on the motor, you CAN put your hand on the impeller blades and 'turn' it a little bit ... there is a little 'slop' or movement, but it will NOT go very far if setup properly. I too was surprised to find that the SC impeller will turn a very short distance ... but it is NOT slipping, just moving a little due to very slight gear drive/motor movement. If you can turn the SC impeller a little bit, then it stops, that is normal.

    you would be able to turn it a bit but not much... even if you did this with the impeller you would be able to turn it a bit also .. but you would never be able to turn the engine..did you check the clutch slippage after installation of the washers?
