    Shimming Super Charger

    I have been jacking with my 2RUDE this weekend.

    I got a 06-07 clutch setup with riva washers and low hours.
    With 2 shims I am at 10 ft/lbs.

    No matter what i do to try to increase slip it locks up above 16 ft/lbs.

    I have tried many different combinations of new and old shims.
    I have tried to machine down the spacer that goes on shaft before nut.
    I have tried changing some of the spring washers out with 04 spring washers.
    I have tried changing the spacer out to the 04 spacer.

    Nothing I do will work.

    Is this common problem with high boost sc,s trying to set slip high.

    I have been told to use Mc something spring washers but surely there is another way to fix this.


    Does the shaft washers need to be lubricated or something, they look like they already are?
    Does cool weather right now make it lock up easier???

    I am exhausted all i know.

    Any thoughts or help aprreciated.

    08 Sc rebuild kit is what you need to run 2Rude or any other high boost chargers.

    Do you have to change the 08 washers to Riva for the Rude2?

    WHY, what is the difference in slipage.

    I have run the 2rude with my 07 kit with no issues, just cant get the slip right.

    add shims until it locks up then wear down the L ring on some emery cloth until you achieve the proper slip moment.

    RXP6 gave some good advice. The 08 clutch kit is the only way to go on these high boost superchargers. It will hold proper slip moment a lot longer than the 07 and older kits.

    THanks, heading to shop to try it out. Did you have to wear down the L ring pretty good. I allready did it some this weekend.

    Nice, now i got something else to buy.

    We need some thinner shims. It seems like the last batch I got were thicker than previous ones. I have not measured to confirm but they do seem to be thicker on average. Although it seems the higher the slip gets the more each shim effects it. Its not linear. 1 shim may take you from 7ft lbs to 9ft lbs but that same shim can take you from 10 ft lbs to locked.

    This is what I did except I used 180 sand paper. It takes a little bit of elbow grease .
