After a hard weekend in the dunes the slippery washers did not fail me. THanks to Andy for the loaner clutch.

I beat on my car pretty hard and put on a little show by jumping down and sideways at Olds hill. Convinced a prospective sxs buyer to go with the Maverick. I also found a new EPI belt in the sand, its longer than the Maverick though. Watched quite a few failures of other machines, re-set a few beads on tires. All while beating the sheet out of my Maverick.

So it looks like for now the slippery washer deal is doing its job for now.

Yes, in the perfect world the primary will slip on the bolt without further tightening the bolt. Some have still broke the so called fix. Just thinking out loud but if the dealership does the clutch bolt recall and just throws a big impact on the primary bolt and torques it down he may be over tightening the bolt and not allowing the slippery washers to do there job.
the recall procedure paperwork expressly says not to use power tools or wipe any grease off the slippery washers. It also says to use no loctite. The dealer would have to be completely stupid to use an impact and not torque it to 89ft pounds.
