    Some of us do not run a nose cone, while some of us do..Its all preference.Some have seen speed gains with out it, while some have not..With running salt water some will say to use it BUT at the same time you could trap salt water if the seal is bad..I Me?personally dont run one...

    I recommend using it. Red loctite it in place, but it is there to keep the anti-sieze from washing out of the splines on the shaft.
    My $0.02.
