Any silicone will work fine, but I prefer using thinner stuff like 1211 because it's easy to clean off when changing props. If you have the whole pump out & need to reseal both sides just make sure not to get too much around the cooling water passage because you don't want any excess to squeeze out inside there. You don't want any little balls of silicone getting sucked into the cooling system & possibly causing a clog somewhere.

I think I sealed my nozzle to the pump, but I quit sealing the pump to the wear ring since I have my pump out so often.
