    Installing Les Metal Clutch Washers

    I am installing Les washers in my 05 RXT S/C. I have new spring washers, needle bearings, Les washers and RR shims in case the tension is not correct. My question is the final torque on the clutch stack and what the slip moment should be with the metal washers. Also if you do not make the range of slip, where does the shims go, under the crush collar or between the spring washers? Thanks for any help and I think the original clutch was just a hair away from failing because the slip was around 60"lbs with the ceramic washers.

    Skip, you won't need the shims. The metal washers are thicker than the ceramics which puts more tension on the clutch.

    You will probably be at about 16 nm, but after 4, or 5 hours of run time the slip moment will drop down to 12 NM.

    by the way, the shims go in between the spring washers.

    Why didn't you take it to the dealer and have them replace it with the 06 clutch under warranty and then get the 06 washer ?

    Because I am out of warranty and even if I was still in, they would still install ceramics. And I prefer to do my own maintenance so I can understand my machine.
