another sc washer slip question...
I had GH install washer on my sc over a year ago....at that time the sc had maybe 70 hrs on it. Now my sc has 170 hours on it.
At the end of last year I completed my rear air intake...only ran it once...then put it up for the winter...I was all over the limiter...didn't know it. This spring I got to tweeking that air set up and ran the ski a few more times...also on the limiter. After deciding that a taller prop was in order I put one on....the weather started warming up faster than I could test though and I lost my base line...long story short...I gained speed but at the same time I lost 400+ rpm's.
Now...I know the prop needs to be tweeked...and it will....by a pro.
How likely is it that my sc washers are slipping and they're contributing to my loss in rpms?

I would say very likely with 100 hrs since last shimming.

After looking around and not finding the answer....how do I test the slip? What tools, methods are required?

Here's the holder tool:
With these you can do all you need to sc except main bearings.
