    Help, Should I shim?

    What should I do guys. I just pulled my super charger. I have 32 hours on my metal washers. I have the super charger in the vise and just checked my slip. I have around 65-75 inch pounds of slip. Am I checking it correctly. I am holding the gear with the gear holding tool and I am spinning the nut counter clockwise. I made about 4 spins. Should I shim?

    I don't know, 6.25 Lbs..you might want to rebuild, that's getting kinda loose..Try one shim and recheck, if your still way off I would re-build.

    That's not too bad for a stock wheel or similar. Try to find the thinnest shim you can, or a couple and see what you can do.

    Let her rip..You are fine.... Once you get it out and run it the slip will come down some so you are OK with what you have...
