Leaking water pump

Recommended Posts

Has anybody had any trouble with the water pump leaking. My 97 has just started leaking at the weep hole. Is this hard to replace?

percy;

It's not the water pump that is leaking, it's the seal behind it. The service manual recommends that you change the mechanical seal, the oil seal, and the bearing all at the same time. It looks like some engine disassembly is required to get the seals and bearing out.

Thanks for the information, even if its not what I wanted to hear. I don't have a service manual. Are the seals and bearing located in the side cover, or do I have to go deeper?

Seals and bearing are in the side cover. Go to www.buykawasaki.com and click on "View Parts Diagrams" then follow the prompts until you get to the diagram listings. Look at "Engine Cover(s)". The parts are # 49063, 92049, and 92045.
