    "lubricate the splines on jet pump"

    hello, does anyone know if this procedure is necessary? my local dealer says as part of their $240 winterization, they change the oil, do the antifreeze, fog, and "lubricate the splines on jet pump"

    So of course i change my own oil and winterize, fog, etc. But I have not ever "lubricate the splines on jet pump".

    Ideas? Thanks all...

    When they are pulling out the pump they are putting a marine grease on the drive shaft splines that is all.

    You can also use anti seize on the splines too..

    That is a much better idea. That does not come off for anything.

    You should also know that the RXP pump is filled with grease and not oil... Ron

    I also put anti seize on the splines. Just like Kevin said the stuff doesn't come off anything i took my pump off after about 20 hours on it and there's still a decent amount on the splines with NO nose cone either.

    Replaced my stock 05 RXP wear ring and added an aftermarket Solas impeller today. I did not use the green pump cone (too many threads with issues). Instead, I put anti-seize on the driveshaft splines and the splines of the new impeller.

    I also removed and did not re-use the stock plastic / rubber impeller boot assembly.

    Just double-checking that I did the right procedure?

    Thanks in advance!
