Make sure prop is tight ? We put slot of force in to the prop
I'll check noise cone
Should the nose cone be filled with grease or half way? It was half filled when I pulled it of so I Left it like that and added grease around the prop bolt

It's better to put in a new wearring,also check your engine mount bolts. if they are still tight
You should torque your impeller to 130 nm or 95 ft/lb.
The amount of grease is ok.

The nose cone is the little green or blue cone at the front of your prop...make sure that didnt back off and walk up your driveshaft..also as Rick stated,check your motor mounts to make sure they are tight AND if possible i would have your engine alignment checked too

Definitely check the nose cone. Mine backed off and caused vibration.

It's only when I run it wide open I let off just a lil bit and it goes away

WHEN is the vibration? Is it down low in the RPM range, in the middle, or up top?
You might be spinning the ring inside the pump when you get up to speed, that will cause vibration.
