    6 spring washers on the clutch!!!

    seadoo02xp sent me his SC to have the clutch checked out as he was losing performance.

    The shocker was this thing had 6 spring washers in it (there are only supposed to be 5)

    Someone botched the install up and put a 6th spring washer in it as a "band aid" to attempt to restore normal clutch tension Didn't work

    I know that there is not one dealer in the STL that knows how to do a S/C.
    A guy that use to work for me, got a job as the service manager at a Seadoo dealer in the STL when he left my shop he went to work the next day for the Seadoo dealer, I wouldnt even let him drive the company truck, thats how bright he was he calls me all the time to ask stupid ??
