    Metal SC washers---Synthetic Oil?????

    If the ceramic washers was the only thing keeping us from running synthetic oil. Then should'nt we be able to run it with metal washers????
    I would like to have the protection of a fully synthetic oil in my engine.

    friction modifiers in synthetic oil prevent us from running that with our wet clutch superchargers. If you do a search you'll find a lot of discussion about that. I'd stick with your normal 10W40 and change it every 25 or 30 hours. I would NOT wait every 100 hour that's recommended in the manual.

    No, even with metal washers you are to use conventional mineral oil.

    There are however some synthetics such as Amsoil that don't contain friction modifiers and is safe to use.

    Tube, are you saying your rebuilt SC clutch with ceramics went out before you got it on the water? I've heard of low hour SC failures, but never NO hour SC failures.

    How do you know the SC is bad from just running it on the trailer?
