    Question S/C Install

    Shipped my S/C to Jerry for the metal washer upgrade & I just have a few questions about putting it back on:

    a. The Riva doc says to use blue thread locker but there was none on the threads when I pulled it so is it necessary?

    b. Riva doc also says to use anti-seize. Do I need this?

    c. What is the blue stuff on the S/C shaft/housing? Is this the OEM SeaDoo grease?

    Thanks in advance,
    Rob

    A: Some may disagree, but I would use it(blue loctite)
    B: Yes, especially in salt environments
    C: Yes, smear it on the back where the S/C meets the block. it is the antisieze.

    The rear S/C bolt was actually loose so I was leaning towards using it anyway, just wanted a general consensus. I was surprised it wasn't already coated.

    Thanks for the reply,

    If you need more of the sea doo anti seize just go to a pep boys and get some permatex anti seize the sea doo grease is expensive as hell for about quater of the price u can get twice as much at pep boys.

    riva claim 2 torque the bolts at 22 ft lbs on the s3 s/c instructions in the sea-doo shop manual it saies 2 torque at 89 in lbs on page 207 i think thats the right page, every other bolt on the engine that same size calls 4 89 in lbs & yes i use blue locktite

    i've always torque my s/c at 89 in lb with blue locktite & never had any come loose, with those little bolts 22 ft lb is a lot thats 264 in lb thats almost 3 times what the sea-doo shop manual & i don't want 2 strip out my bolt holes
