92 Cr250 2 stroke leaking antifreeze

Recommended Posts

Need more info. Where is it leaking? Out the overflow? Head gasket? Water pump? Burning it? Dripping from anywhere in specific? Is it losing coolant when it is hot? When it is cold? Dripping constantly? You need to be more specific when you ask the questions...

Ya, as for now though, it's leaking from the inside out..

Looks like it's just the gasket around the water pump. When it's gets warm it's enough pressure to push through the gasket

your water pump is shot big time! needs new seals and probably new pump shaft.

Do a cooling system pressure test, see exactly were it comes from.

 

If it leaks from the case/cover itself (not a gasket)

don't some older Honda's have issues with magnesium components (cases/covers?) eroding over time when old/acidic coolant is left in too long?

did you check the water pump shaft if it is in good condition (no scores/marks/corroded)? it seems to leak from the water pump inspection hole, is that correct?

 

if it is leaking from there then the seals are not installed properly, water pump shaft not good OR an internal crack of the clutch cover but extremely rare to happen... or now that i'm thinking of it, maybe during seals installation, have done a mark on the seal race surface and it is leaking from there. anyhow you must dissasemble it and post some pics.

 

also 92 has aluminum cover cover so there are no corrosion/eroding issues.

If the seals were put in the wrong way, they won't be able to hols pressure properly against the shaft.. If the coolant used previously was automotive coolant (with silicates) the pump shaft will be grooved and even new seals won't seal up against it. ( silicates are tiny abrasives used to scrub the inside of auto engines to control rust and deposits.. very harmful to the impeller shafts and aluminum pump housings) 

 

Take it apart and check for proper assembly and worn shaft and seals.
