Klueber Isoflex 5051

Category: General Tech Discussion 8 months ago

Going to pull the oil pump as it’s leaking oil. Does anyone have some Klueber Isoflex 5051 they will sell? Need small amount for the new o-rings.

    Just use some motor Oil.

    The purpose of Lubricating the O-Ring is so that it is able to move and seat properly during the initial installation.

    Once the bolts are tight, it serves no purpose.

    The O-Ring does the sealing, Not the grease.

    Grease allows you to lube the O-Ring Days/Months before installation. Think, Production line.

    Oil is just fine if you intend to install the pump within the hour. Think, Workshop.

    Yeah, I can’t see paying $200 for a pound of grease.

    A friend of mine works on C-130s and they use vaseline. It is compatible with all of the Herc's (many) different types of O-rings.

    Parker sells an o-ring lube in a tube and it looks and feels just like Vaseline.
