I have been procrastinating on trying a different size Fuzzy Washer. My original experience was to use a second stock 2mm washer and it was just what I wanted until I did a belt change and started having stalling problems from the belt dragging the housing at idle.
500 owners felt the second stock washer was too much. BubbaJon took the initiative of having some washers made at 1mm thickness, half the stock washer thickness. As most here know this has been wildly popular but now inventory is gone and none are available. We all owe BubbaJon thanks for his efforts to spread the joy.
This morning I talked with a couple machine shops and will have pricing back within a week. Should be no problem to get them deliverd in the U.S. for $10 each through paypal unless I get a pricing surprise different than preliminary discussion.
I also plan to try different sizes and need to know how many others might want to try a different size. The existing 1mm was not a scientific analysis, just split the difference between stock and nothing. It may not be optimum and like many things what is optimum for one of us is not the same for all with trade offs in such things as mpg vs acceleration.
I plan to get some 1.5mm washers as that is what I think will improve my performance on 400 and hopefully not drag the belt enough at idle to stall the engine. I also plan to get some 0.5mm ones as some have expressed the 1mm is more than they want and with other brand variators some have found even the 1mm has the stalling problem at idle.
Speak up if you want to try either 0.5mm or 1.5 mm as I don't want to be stuck with very many I can't get rid of. The 1mm may have a cash flow issue but I will eventually recover my money. The 1mm will move, it will just take time as new members join.
Please provide any and all feedback on the idea.
