    Silicone between pump stator and extension ???

    When putting my Virage's pump back together should I use a little silicone between pump sections? I haven't in the past but have always wondered if I was getting a air leak on the suction side of pump causing cavitation....

    I thought I was having a capitation issue once and tried it! it still disassembles easily so try it if u want! my issue was something else so no harm no foul! Z

    It couldn't hurt. I put never seize on mine when I put it together. It was hard to get a part and I figured it might make it easier the next time.

    I also use anti-seize, and I use it on alot of pwc bolts. I love using anti-seize when bolting into aluminum period.
    I use blue loc-tite on some bolts like the lower case bolts and engine mts, but I never use red loctite.
