    Thoughts on steel washers.

    When you torque the factory ceramic washers they know how much pressure it takes to get the proper slip. Therefore if you were to put Steele washers, coated with something like in the pictured circled, the Coefficient would be different. In the picture the third row down shows the Coefficient compared to Steele. I have not found the Coefficient of ceramic to compare it to. If the torque were a little bit, lets say 10 to 15%, over or under to get the proper slip would that be a problem. When GH put his in I think he had to sand them down several times to get the proper torque and the proper slip at the same time. That in turn would be removing the coating on the washer that makes it last and would change the Coeffient. Let me know what everyone thinks I am in the middle of this and don’t want to really make 20 or 30 sizes to cover a range of lets say .010 just to get a bolt tight enough not to move.

    I found out my problem i had with that set of 04 washers.
    Les had mistakenly given me 1 washer off of an 06 and the other off of an 04. They were both supposed to be 04. The one off of the 06 was thicker causing the increased tension hence the reason i had to machine down the L nut.

    With my metal washers you will not have to machine anything down. They will drop right in and be precise.

    I built a supercharger last night for water4fire with the Les 04 washers and it all went great. It was then that i realized that Les must have mistakenly given me an 06 washer with an 04 washer.

    If you will tell me how thick the 04-05 and how thick the 06 ones are I will be able to find out which one is in mine then I can at least order the right ones. And check them when they arrive. Don't want your head aches GH!
