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...

Thanks very much guy's for taking the time to reply
Would the fully synthetic 75w gear oil be okay ?
