Just remember, if the pulley is loose on the shaft in the slightest, nut off, you may have a problem already.

There are many similar products on the market. Although I've never used the SKF product mentioned here I have used a product called Krytox quite extensively in industrial applications where conditions reach serious extremes when pertaining to both temperature and moisture. Krytox is almost cost prohibitive but extremely effective for this very purpose. I would think most any product that restricts air and moisture penetration would be better than nothing. It used to be simple when we just used white lead paste but I assure you these new compounds will be longer lasting.

I used white lead for checking the patterns on ring and pinion gears...or am I dating myself again?
