water pump seal
« on: August 29, 2017, 07:36:17 PM »
Guys, my ds has not breathed life in over 2 years, sent the motor off to be re-built and now I am finally getting it back together. ran for the first time in several years. chased down a few leaks.

but i am leaking coolant out of the weep hole. couple of things with that are should be new pump, shaft and seal.

what is the best fix? replace seal? since it is new would it make sense to pull shaft polish and clean seal?

are any special tools required to remove seal? and adivice?

hoping that it would seal itself would be wishful thinking? could i plug the hole for the weekend?


Thanks

Are you saying it has a new water pump installed recently? Was there any lubricant put on it, if you know?

Every time I've had a leak on my ds, I've had to replace the shaft and both seals
I have gotten away with polishing the shaft on a few other quads before

No special tools, if I remember correctly I pulled out the seals with an Allen L wrench


Not gonna seal itself haha I wish they would
As for plugging the hole, if you do that then the only place the coolant can go is into the oil :P

Should be replaced as soon as you can in my opinion




One thing I kinda want to do next time is to put a grease fitting in that hole so you can continually fill it with grease, but take the ball out of the fitting and have a clear hose on it to see when it leaks
I think I had read that here a while ago
