    Anti-seize and Non-residual Cleaner?

    I am ready to break down the supercharger on my RXT and replace the ceramic washers to metal washers but I see in the Riva Instructions that it states to clean the SC impeller shaft and its components with a Non-residual Cleaner.

    Can I get that at any Marine store... i.e. West Marine, Boaters World, etc.?

    Also, it states that when installing the SC back onto the engine that Anti-Seize be applied to the non-painted area of the SC unit. What is Anti-seize and where can I find it?

    I know these questions may sound stupid but I would rather be safe than sorry. Thank you in advance.

    laquer thinner is what I use for a "non-residual" cleaner, brake cleaner and electric contact cleaner work too. the OEM anti-sieze is simply water resistant grease, looks exactly like the blue Amsoil grease that I use on trailer bearings.

    A non residual cleaner is a cleaner/degreaser that does not leave a residue behind when it dries or is wiped off. Break clean is a commonly used one. As far as the anti-seize i would just use a marine grade grease that is what they used on it from the factory. From what i have been told the regular silver anti-seize that you get in the auto parts stores does not react well to salt water. Thats why i didnt use it
