Jet Pump Grease
Went to the dealer today to pick up some jet pump grease to fill the nose cone and this is what they gave me..
It's a synthetic grease that is "specifically made for Ski-Doo and Can-Am vehicle suspensions"
It is NOT gold in color like the orignal grease is supposed to be I believe? But more of a black/dark purple..
Is this okay to use or do I need to return it and buy the grease through the Green Hulk store that is specifically made for jet pumps?
Also is there anything that needs to be changed to the stock setup in order to run gear oil instead? If not, I might just run with that instead..
Thanks for the help

Areiter, I changed to gear oil " Royal Purple 75w-140" about a year and a half ago in both my ski's with no issues at all. I didn't change anything to the stock setup. I took a plastic spoon and got out most of the grease then wiped it out good, the small amount left will dissipate into the oil. I don't remember the exact amount of oil. Someone will chime in with it. I took my pump apart about 2 weeks ago in the T and the oil looked like when I put it in, after about 90hrs.

If you decide to go with oil then i would go with 2 to 2.5 oz....no more,no less...

why not just put the pump on the bench with the cone pointing up and fill the part where the bearing is with the correct amount of oil and then install the cone??

The reverse bucket would probably make that difficult because everything would then become a chaotic balancing act without spillage
