Water Pump Lubricant

Description and Application:

water pumpNot all water pumps on automotive equipment require field lubrication. Even those which are to be lubricated periodically do not all require the same type of lubricant.Charts or instruction sheets should be referred to before applying this type of lubricant.

Gland packed water pumps should have special water pumps lubricating grease which will not be carried into the cooling system.This should be applied with either a low pressure gun or a gun having a low pressure adaptor.

Where the lubricant does not come in contact with the water,chassis lubricant can be safely used for water pump lubrication.Here again low pressure should be used for application.In a few cases grease cups will be found on water pumps .These can be filled with regular water pump lubricating grease.
