I received my new pump and plan to put it on in next several days.
Two questions:
How do you make sure key stays in jetway and does not push to back of key way and fall out? Instructions mentioned maybe using a dab of super glue?
What is your start up procedure with a new pump so that no damage is done.
Thanks.

dab of grease for the key.
you can also stake it
start up
connect to water like you do for a run.
turn on the water
and pull the trigger on the wand till you get free flow of water.
then start the engine.

the free flow of water gets all the air out of the suction and water feeds.
that way the seals have water to cool them.

Thanks Paul.
Was going to also use some anti seize on flange bolts. Should I use on shaft also?

Staking the key means to take a chisel and make one or two cross hits such that there are burrs sticking out the sides. Place the side that you hit down into the keyway and tap it into place with a hammer.

or you could use a pin punch.
it just makes for a bit tighter fit on a loose key way for a tap in to place key.
