Step by Step - How to Replace the Water/Oil Pump Seal

This Subject should be useful for anyone needing to perform this task OR if you don't know any details regarding the Pump, allow you to view it internally.



I talked a GOOD Friend of Mine into Doing the Work as I took the Pictures.
Believe it or not, HE's Still a Good Friend.

Rebuild/Replace Water/Oil Pump Seals - Work Performed by Steven (SuperSPuppy) MASTER Backyard Mechanic

If you must change the Oil Pump Seal, the Engine must be pulled and the Engine Case removed. If only changing the Water Pump Seal, this may be done with the Engine left in.

Picture of Engine Case Oil Seal


Use a Brass Punch to Gently Knock Out the Oil Seal


25 mm Socket


Water Pump Seal


Gently Remove the Water Pump


Water Pump Seal Out of Copper Gasket


Water Pump Seal w/Copper Gasket


Knock out the Oil Seal Behind the Water Pump


Oil Seal in Hole Behind the Water Pump


Needing a bit of a Break and some Humor
EVER GET TIRED OF JUST STICKING Around


New Oil Seal


Use a Socket to Knock Out the Copper Water Pump Seal


Gently using the 25 mm Socket to Remove the Seal


Copper Water Pump Seal Removed


SKIP


Gently/Carefully Trim the Plastic Cover Off the New Water Pump Seal


Clean the Engine Case Cover


Cleaned Seal Inside Weep Hole


Picture of What Weep Hole Looks Like from the Outside


Gently open the New Water Pump Seal Leaving the Top Part of the Seal STILL in the Plastic Cover


This is what if Looks Like without the Cover


Picture of Water Pump Seal JUST sitting in the Engine Case – NOT INSTALLED


REDNECK Water Pump Tool---select a Socket that just fits around the inside rubber pump, so that it is sitting against the Copper Lip on the Seal


Socket Size ??? 1 ”


Place the Engine Case on a Flat Solid Surface and Tap the Seal Gently until it is Bottomed Out


Bottom View of Engine Case with Water Pump Seal Installed


Mag Side of Pump Seal


Picture Showing Mag Side


Using a SMALL amount of Gasket Seal to aid in the Installation, HOWEVER NOT RECOMMENDED supposed to be installed DRY


Use a Socket as big as the lip on the Seal MAYBE 1 ”


Hand Press the Seal UNTIL it Bottoms Out


Example of Finished Oil Pump Seal Viewed from the Mag Side



NOTE : You can SEE the Weep Hole at the Back of the Water Pump


Oil Seal at Water Pump


Turn the Socket Upside down


Gently push in until it is Flush with the Engine Case


WARNING and SIDE NOTE : Seal is Flush with Outside Engine Case BUT not pressed all the way in against the Water Pump Seal OTHERWISE this would BLOCK the Weep Hole


Place Top Half of Water Pump Seal on Water Pump


Remove Cover
