    RXP-X260 Pump Unit oil or Grease ?

    Hi There ,
    I have just bought a Riva/Solas 160mm Pump unit and was wondering if running it with oil rather than grease was a good idea ?
    I thought oil would be better at lubricating keep more of the oil round the bearing than grease would , I was going to run fully synthetic 75w gear oil
    If oil is recommended how much should i fill it with please ?
    Thanks in advance

    Waz, I run oil in my pump and it works fine, checked it 3 years running and still clear I can look up how much I used but if you do a search I know the amount is in a post, just don't overfill it needs some air space.

    3 oz on your first fill...2.5 oz after that or per oil change...
