Thread: welded SC shaft

  1. #1

    Thumbs up welded SC shaft

    Hey I just wondered why noone else welds the SC drive clutch solid! Everyone bleats on that its crap!

    I figured if it was good enough for a some old rotary diff, its rough enough for me! 8o)

    Am now running custom compressor wheel with 18 pounds and a welded clutch....

    06 Rxp with 60 hours on the welded clutch no probs!

    Biggest noticable difference 84mph..... and It F***KS off outa the hole like a mental!

    Thanks for the help Jerry

    I think the clutch is there to do a job - I would guess you could break the SC shaft or other components without it.
    So far as I can work out, the clutch does most of its work when coming unhooked in the chop/Salt Water, so maybe if you only ride on glass you might get away with it welded up??

    if you run in chop water, the shaft will snap within 20 min 100%, I had that issue allready because of to much clutch tension on Metall washer

    the shaft broke exact on the SC housing bearing, the shaft piece with the gear/washer meesed up all the PTO internals icl. the block, gears , etc

    so in real world condition the shaft will snap, but I wish good luck if some wants to try out , because luck is what you need

    If by some miracle you have made it this far with a welded clutch you are super lucky. But It will fail and when it does your in for some serious engine damage and a big fat bill. O, and I smell bullshit.

    People, please DO NOT go out and weld your shafts. I'm not sure who this poster is, nor did i help him or give him advice to do such a foolish thing. Those that welded the gear to the shaft suffered catastrophic failures.
