    My les washers are only holding 73 in lbs

    i started running 8300 rpms after like ten runs around the lake (only like 1/2 mile long) rpms dropped to 7900. to me it seemed like the clutch was slipping.

    That's about 6 ft lb. Should still turn top Rpm.
    What if you gradually accelerate, instead of nailing it?
    How old are your pressure washers?????????

    Mine is slipping at about 8ft lbs they are supposed to be at 10 ft lbs , I think. I'll have to buy some RR shims and try to get it back up there. I can still turn 8500rpms, but only at only 11psi now.

    Psycho when you get down to about 5 or 6lbs you will need a shim 8 is a good place to be. RR shims are .009. Watch the cheaper snap click style torque wrenches, mine was not accurate below 10lbs.

    that's the wrench I have except mine is a 2% accuracy model which is not much different in price but a lot more common.

    Stan , I'm going to order some shims to keep around for both of my SC'ers. Here's my new Torque wrench ... Very accurate : http://www.greenhulk.net/forum/viewt...+torque+wrench
