"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..

So why would you remove the pump for winterizing???

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!
