Those who use an Wedge (not golf thread)
question about the riva wedge. Do you put silicon or right stuff on just the pumpside or both sides and if both sides do you have to clean and redo everytime you change or work on the prop?

I put it on both sides very lightly. and clean it when I have taken it off to work on the pump

I honestly wouldn't use anything. I used silicon lightly but I don't think it makes a difference. Just make sure its good and tight.

i researched it, and found this, made sense to me.
put only on reduction nozzle side, that way when you disassemble/reassemble its quick. you can leave the wedge on , and not have to clean and reseal every time.
also, on this side of the pump its pressure, not vacuum, so theres no chance of cavitiation. any water that squeezes out thru the edge isnt going to effect your performance.
its actually a really tight fit, i dont think anything is gonna squeeze thru anyways.
i did put a small bead around the venturi holes, on the pump side of the wedge to help them seal tight for suction...
i am still using the old venturi drain system, maybe you are not?

Hmmmm-I must have missed something . Had a two degree wedge om my 2004 RXP for three years-- was installed dry on both side--no issues. Installed another one on my 08 P-X and no issues yet--of course I only have four hours on it. What might I look forward to?? Do I need to take it off and add sealer??
