    Question about supercharger clutch replacement

    When the ceramic clutch disc's break and it time to replace them, just wondering why we need to take the motor apart and get the pieces out if there are two srceens in both the front and rear of the motor protecting the oil pumps? Even the factory service manual says nothing about removing the broken parts. Are we just doing this for an added saftey measure to protect the bearings or is this REALLY a must do job. I am just curious about this. All opinions welcome!

    it is really a must do proceedure. if left alone it will trash your oil pumps. there are tiny particles of ceramic that pass thru the screens and totally F'up the pumps. I know from experience

    I was just cleaning the screens and you are right some of those little particles get caught in the screen near the edges and you have to look very closely to make sure you get them all out and they dont just blow out you have to pick them out with a tiny awl. OMG I cant imagine letting a dealer do this work, I know there are some good techs out there but all the ones that I have met only THINK they know what they're doing and are not very thuro. One more question, what about the passage between the PTO and the front suction pump is that a solid straight shot back and forth or are there openings? The reason I ask is that if there are any particles in there can I use compressed air and blow them out? I am needing to be thuro here ya know

    im not sure of a specific passage, but M. Underwood recommends splitting the engine cases and cleaning out the bottom case. There are lots of places ceramics can get trapped and end up back in the oil pumps.

    Im so glad we have metal washers now. No more worries about this crap!

    They will be $100 for the set and i will have them available as soon as 2 weeks.

    I will also do installations for those without the tools/know how.

    Thumbs up

    How many sets and should we pre-order. My `06 clutch is finally in and hopefully I can have it in the shop this week. After that I`m going metal. I really don`t trust anyone else but me tearing my motor apart.

    HOSS, you dont trust me?

    Unfortuntately you cant buy just ceramic washers. You have to buy a complete rebuild kit.

    You can get metal washers right now from Les Cooke www.seadoocentre.com
