Installation of the "Washington Anti Shocker" () is easy. It does require removing the engine and cutting a notch in the top of the bell housing flange of the engine case. This can be done with a hacksaw and a die grinder or a drill motor with a rotary file. If the case has bolt head holding bumps, it requires grinding or spot facing of the engine mount bolt hole on the trans case to allow bracket installation. The bracket needs a flat surface to seat on. Adjustment of this device is easy. The barrel of it is threaded so that it can be easily adjusted, and adjustment is maintained with a lock nut. The pressure amount that controls how fast the clutch is closed is adjusted with a micro adjustment, and normally takes one or two tests before proper adjustment is achieved. All of which is explained with the kit.
Be clear that the "Washington Anti Shocker" () will not reduce parts breaking due to the rear wheels getting off the ground, speeding up, coming down, and suddenly grabbing. It will also not stop breakage on cars that have the rear wheels spinning in a stationary location and suddenly grab or suffer from wheel hop. Its function is to stop breakage from severe clutch engagements.
It has been used with great success. We get reports from purchasers of the "Washington Anti Shocker" () with miraculous results and the sheer joy of being able to consistently hook their car up without breakage. Many claim the investment has saved them enormous amounts of money normally spent on slipper clutches or broken parts, not even counting all of the work and lost races. Our thanks to you for letting us know and to Howard Washington for the great idea and years of testing. Originated by Howard Washington in 1985. SW 3#. Made in USA by Gene Berg Enterprises.
