on my motorcycles I try not to use anything that will attract dirt/dust from getting in there, so a dry film spray...  but in the water, there really isnt dust n dirt...so really maybe something greasy to combat water/rust might be better? idk, I leave them alone until they lock up, then i havent found anything to get them loose again, so Ive had to buy new  Undecided

yup

they are threaded the other way so the force of the motor spinning keeps 'em tighter

...also I found that supporting the shaft end with a board or something is necessary to keep the impeller free turning, and there are notches on the shaft inside the pump you can put a wrench on to keep the shaft from turning... oh hey, maybe you lock-up the impeller and spin the shaft backwards, never thought of trying that(maybe thats how the pros do it?)


I just forgot this the other day, as i was so excited to start turning the wrenches the other way(after taking my JetStar all apart) when putting things back together, i spent 20min thinking something was wrong trying to put my 'prop' back on

When removing the prop, you wrench clockwise, correct?

T-Rush, Smiley   I sure wish all this info you're gaining and sharing was in a it's own thread.  Rather than a wanted ad.

yes, well to be more exact about what this project totally is; I'm gonna try to build two WetBikes, the first and last ones
AVR 1976 Bond bike
and
1240 1992 Force bike
....the biggest problem I see with these bikes(and the main reason they dont exist anymore, if ever) is that they suck

the 'first bike' likely struggled horribly from all kinds of details that needed further development, and we have seen how the design has improved

the 'last bike' would have suffered from management decisions(vs design) and pride(over necessary function)

....if any of either of these bikes are still around, I would guess that over the years they would have been modified to reflect the more standard WetBike models we know today, and lost....so thats why I would like to try to recreate 'tribute bikes', so they are not so lost, even tho they suck
hopefully keeping that mindset will help the project(s) along, otherwise I think you would get stuck in that loop of trying to fix the things they didn't get quite right

LPS 2 or silicone spray should be safe for the liners inside quality cables.

Great, I am not a previous or current Wetbike cup holder...I must be ignored just for talking to the Wetbike Cup holders, or maybe because I don't drink with them?


Wow. I thought you had the cup some time long ago before I discovered Wetbikes. Interesting. You may not drink with us but you do usually stay up late and hang out. By that time we don't even realize that you are the only sober responsible one.  Grin

"Responsible" is going a bit far...

I like fluid film because it's not a petroleum product and does not break down rubber or plastic.
