    Finished my Steel Washer install

    Got my new washers from Jerry, and got them installed all with no problem. Putting the 40 needle bearing back was "fun" to say the least, but it all done.

    So I take it out for a test ride. The ski runs better than ever, gainned 100 RPM to 8000. I'm loving life.

    Then I do a turn and get back in it. NOTHING! about 6200 RPM max. All sorts of things and people getting cussed out. Bring it home, and pull the seat off.

    Its amazing how slow it is when the blower output hose clamp comes loose, and there is zero boost.

    So now life is good again. Couldn't have done it with out Jerry's help. Thanks so much for your patience throught the 100 or so emails!

    $90 for the washers, and probably about $900 in free tech advice.

    Thanks! Me too. You should have seen the look on my wife's face when I brought it in and said I lost the S/C. Looks that kill is an understatement.

    Free, who said it was free, I want my share of the $900.

    I love it when I meet people on the lake with a slow RXP/T and they have no idea why. The washer are the best upgrade you can do.
