Thread: Impeller installation
04-27-2014, 03:17 PM #1
In the next week im gonna be installing all my over night parts i have collected for my rxp.
I know in the process im gonna need to grease the nose cone of the pump. But i have heard people you some sort of oil or fluid instead of the grease?
Can someone elaborate on this for me.

Yes you are correct....Some of us use gear oil instead of grease..it keeps the bearing bathed at all times VS the grease being pushed into the cone....

I had some leftover Krytox 217 grease from a project (10 steps beyond stupid expensive), and supplemented with some Delvac 75w-90. Looking forward to the results.

What ever brand you coose....I use Mobil 1 75w-90...On a fresh install use 3 oz. after that 2 1/2 ounces will be more than enough...DO NOT over fill or fill the cone completely, you need room for expansion...
You can actually mix some of the grease thats already in your pump if your wanting to mix it..some members have done this too....This is not something new as many of us have been doing this for years.....Its pretty basic BUT If you do a search you can probably find more topics on this too that may be of usefull help to ya too....
