|Subject: Oil leaking from water pump seal Mon Nov 26, 2012 7:12 pm|| |
Anyone have any tips and/or pictures on replacing the two water pump seals? I placed the Swing on the center stand and sprayed cleaner under the bike cleaning all indications of oil leak. Ran the engine for 10 minutes. Left the bike on center stand for two days. No sign of an oil leak. Placed bike on side stand and ran the engine for 10 minutes. Oil drops within 5 hours. Dripping from water pump. Visual inspection shows oil running down the back of the water pump where it joins to the engine block. I loosened the wrong bolt when trying to flush my coolant last month. I did not think that it would have caused any harm, but I guess I disturbed the oil seal.

To remove the water pump , the tupperware needs to be removed.There is 2 bolts that secure pump and pump shaft end where the oil ring is located. Lube the new oil ring then line up the shaft end and reinstall the pump . If pump don't leak coolant do not need to separate the pump to get to the oil seal.
