any special hints for mounting a R&D pump seal ?
english is not my motherlanguage, so it is sometimes difficult for me to search with the right english words.
I want to know, if there are some special handling when installing a R&D pump seal.
Any special lubes or sealant needed ?
Any hints to make it perfekt and not running into some trouble?
Its only the second time, that I change a impeller, in the past I do it with stock pump seal.
Thanks for answer or hyperlinks.

I did nothing special with mine. It just pops right on.

Put the seal on the pump/ ring side first and just dry. Then wet up seal and soak the pump tunnel entrance with Windex. Becareful that you don't pinch or twist the seal on the way in. I offered mine up, put on the four brass locking nuts to hold the pump in place & square. Then I gently pushed it home. Every so often I looked through the intake grate with a flashlight just to make sure all was good and no pinching.
You can tighten the bolts gently in sequence to help pull it in square if it's a bit tight. You can't use too much Windex, the more the better.
No need to use any sealant or glue etc. The seal does the whole job brilliantly.
Remember the tightening sequence when you tighten up the pump nuts and use the correct torques, they are only made of brass so go easy.

Soapy water in a spray bottle works for me. Have had the pump off 30+ times with the same seal.

I must be the only one that spits on it. It's good enough for many "sports"....
