    Can I Replace Only Washers??

    Hello,

    Just about to change out washers on my 2005 RXT, is it manditory to install the whole rebuild kit. The machine runs fine just wanted to get those washers out as the failure results can do alot of damage. I the ball bearings fail or any other component in that rebuild kit go, is there any other damage that can be caused?

    Thank everyone.

    Here is some pics of the lift I made to carry our RXT and pull travel trailer.
    I will post some hooked up to the trailer aswell. Thought i better put these on while I was thinking about it.. Hope everyone can see them.

    Give me your thoughts.

    How many hours on your machine??It is recommened that you have the SC rebuilt at or around 100 hours..BUT if you still have the OEM SC clutch washers in then YES you can still,and should get them out ASAP

    That's an awesome setup on your truck. That would make a great build thread if you have the time. Can't really picture my RXT-X on top of my little tacoma though.

    Thanks, kinda had to wing it on this one, only had a week before going on Holidays with it. Probably be a little scary on Tacoma, trade in on a Tundra.

    I'm trying to talk myself into this for my F350, also so that the RV can come along.

    Your supercharger needs a complete rebuild every 100 hrs or so.
    Washers are not the only component that wears. The gear, bearings, shaft, flat nut, etc. all wear and the spring washers lose tension. It's best to go with a complete rebuild kit at 100 hr intervals.

    That's cool, watch your weights I am just legal with 32' trailer. Also 3 seaters are like 13' long, make for some tight cornering.
    Sure saves having to take 2 vehicles on a vacation.

    My trailer is only 23 feet, so weight wise I am ok.

    The length of the skis is the only issue, I have a feeling they may stick out a bit too far to make any corners. I am trying to get some accurate measurements before I commit.

    Worst case, I would use it instead of my double trailer. I know I could get there quicker without a trailer to worry about behind me.
