    Actually if I remember correctly the installation guide said to set the cap nut on the impeller side to 30 ft lbs? I just went to 22 ft lbs and mine was fine.

I personally wouldn't use it. You'll be better off using a small drop of the red... but again... make sure the nut & shaft is clean.

    242 is fine with oil. 243 has improved oil resistance.
