    What's the secret to setting slip on 300 charger?

    Hey,

    So what's the secret to setting the slip on the 300 charger? I was having a hell of a time getting it to 18 ftlb, for my 142 wheel. Every time I would go to torque down the rear nut while holding the inner it would cause the inner nut to slip or something and the clutch would basically lock up. I tried tightening the inner nut less to compensate, but that was kind of hit or miss. I eventually got it to 17.5ftlb and just accepted that as close enough, but it took a lot of tries.

    I'm wondering if holding the gear as well as the inner nut would help when torturing the outer nut..

    This is a tough one as iv done it tons...you MUST make sure the two nuts are tight when finished...i use red locktite....and yes utilize the gear holder as well lock the shaft when tightening..its tough but it works...17.5 lbs is pretty high but should be good...i never go past 16.5 lbs

    I found the way that works best for me is to set the slip for 1-1.5 lbs less then you are aiming for. Then put the outer nut on and torque to spec holding the first nut. This seems to be the way to get closest for me without guessing. Btw through trial and error i figured out on the chargers Ive done that between 18-18.5 lbs is max slip you will get. If you happen to go over then it locks and there is no slip at all because the spring washers are compressed to the max. Just what Ive experienced.

    What your saying about the max slip capable being about 18-18.5 makes a lot of sense. I was shooting for 18.5 ftlb with mine but all i could ever get was like 18.1 ftlb or fully locked up. This would explain why i was having so much trouble.

    So with that said, are there any aftermarket spring washers out there yet that will allow us to go over 18.5 ftlb?
