2 pump questions...
I have 2 quick pump questions, ski is a 2002 GTX 4-Tec
So I recently had some pump work done (new impellar, wear ring, bearings and seals), took it out for a few hours and all seems well at the lake... but
1) The pump still rattles when its on the hose, mechanic said their is no anti-rattle spring in the cone and the schematic I looked at does not list one.
So should it have one, does it need an after-market one, should it rattle, etc.??
2) The mechanic that did my pump said he packed all the bearings and the cone with Maxima waterproof grease... but everything I've seen is a heavy weight oil.
Does this work as well, or could it be harmful, or run then change it ??
Thanks a lot, I appreciate any adivce.

I don't believe the anti-rattle cones were ever used on the 4-tec pumps... at least not in the 04 and up models. That was a 2 stroke thing. The 4-tec pumps use grease from the factory... not oil. You should be just fine with your pump... as the rattle when on the hose is completely normal.

No Guru here, but I have had the pump apart many times, stainless wear ring, upgrade/tweak impellers etc. and all Iv'e ever done is add a little grease to what's already there just to make up for the bit that is lost during disassembly. I only have 80 Hrs on my 05 RXP though.
