The countershaft seal can be pried out easily,just dont do much damage to seal surfaces(on the motor).

as to your jetting problem,put the clip on the main needle back to "stock".

and buy several "main"jets,larger,and,smaller.
"jet-tests"MUST be done after a high-speed test(check sparkplug color,should be "tan")

poping,most all the time (on bikes)is caused by an air-leak somewhere along the exhaust system,

ALSO,when you change:
--it's a GIVEN to re-jet the carb!!

After riding the bike the oil warms and thins so finds it easier to find its easy out.
It sounds like you have a leaking seal that needs replacing.
Found out exactely which seal is leaking by wiping all oil off the bike and getting down and watching where it comes from it will start with a drip then go from there

How do i fix gear box gear oil leak ongs suzukugl drive shaft oil is working up through the starter and bottom of engine kind lie around gear sshifter

On the older bikes like Yamaha and Suzuki's, the starter had an O-Ring gasket on it's face. Your gasket may be bad, broken or missing and causing oil to get through. If you're leaking through your shifter pawl, then you're going to have to remove the case on the left side of the motor and replace the seal.

Garbage disposal leaking on the bottom?

Either the sink seal is leaking or the internal motor shaft seal is bad. If it is the motor seal and the unit is more than 5 years old, replace the disposal. Replace the seal only if you have the appropriate skill.

Diverter valve leaks

I have experienced the same diverter motor leaking problems. I have the whirlpool gold with the diverter motor (w10155344). I bought the unit new 4 years ago. The fix is remove the the two screws that hold the diverter motor and pull the motor. You will find why its leaking is because the rubber seal was installed up side down from the factory. The seal and motor should have calcium and corrosion build up from all leaking. No need to buy new parts. Clean the rubber seal with CLR very carefully, as you will notice a deep groove that has a spring around the inner part, use a tooth pick to clean the corrosion out of the deep groove. After a thorough cleaning, apply thoroughly with vaseline for rubber velocity, be sure to wipe off excessive vaseline. The diverter motor can be cleaned by separating the clips with out breaking tabs that hold it together, be sure to clean the corrosion off the wire connection and the little board it connects to on motor. When installing the seal, slide it down the motor shaft with the deep groove face down it should slide into the lip at the bottom and seat nicely, be sure to clean that area as well with CLR. Install the motor, be sure to clean with CLR where the shaft goes into the hole. That took care of the problem for me. Thanks.

I replaced the motor on my super 2 pump with a new shaft seal. Put it all back together including electrical and now it's leaking from the bottom. I retightened the screws to make sure they weren't loose...

Most likely leaking from either the shaft seal, or the valute seal (big seal plate o-ring). When you replaced the motor you should have also replaced the shaft seal. If not go back and do that whether it's leaking or not. If you get your head down and look at the bottom of the pump while it's running you should be able to see the water coming from the joint between the seal plate, and the seal plate housing, or just behind that from the bottom of the motor probably from the vent holes in the motor housing. If it's coming from the motor then the shaft seal is leaking, and the water is traveling along the shaft and out the bottom of the motor. This will eventually get into the motor and seize up the bearings. If it's coming from the valute seal, then you need to either replace or re-seat the seal. As a general rule you should always replace the shaft seal, and diffuser and seal plate o-rings when you replace the motor or split the seal. I'm not as familiar with the 2 speed hayward super 2, but the standard super 2's have a small ribbon seal, often called a rubber band. They are infamous for going bad especially after pulling the pump apart.

Motor is very noisy

Noisy motor indicates bearings on the shaft are going bad. This happens when you have a shaft seal leak and the leaking water is getting to the bearings. Sounds like you need to replace shaft seal and set of shaft bearings. Easy fix is to replace the motor only for about $150.00 for motor replacement. Around $40.00 for seal and bearings and some of your time.

Water coming out down by motor , pump is pumping but leaking. how do you get impeller off

sounds like a shaft seal leak..... cut power to pump ... unbolt the motor at the seal plate and pull motor from pump... take electrical cover off back of pump and hold the shaft at the middle (may have to do some digging to find it) of the back of the pump... now youll be able to remove the impeller by spinning it counter clockwise...
make sure you dont go cheap on the seals... and make certain to replace all seals on pump
(diffuser oring, housing gasket, shaft seals, and lid gasket

How do you replace the rear seal on a aqua flo xp2

You will need to get access to the impeller, then unscrew it counter clockwise. You will have to hold the shaft of the motor to unscrew the impeller. You can gain access to the shaft by popping off a little round cover on the back of the motor, you should see a slot in the motor shaft. Once you get the impeller off, unscrew the thru-bolts. The housing should pull right off. From there you can pop out the seal half that is in the housing and replace it - the other half of the seal is on the impeller. These 2 pieces come with the new seal. When you put the housing seal half back in use some silicone around it. The impeller end just pushes on. Link to Aqua Flo XP2 Diagram

Maytag Dishwasher-pdb2430awx-Leaking

I believe that you must buy the plastic pump housing.....And that vinyl type shaft seal comes with that..I think!!!!
I have the same problem.....I changed the regular seal kit at a cost of $30.00 CND....Which is like what? 100.00 American.
Anyways mine still leaks after all that. Turns out there is so much rust between the nylon seal that is attached to the motor shaft, that water works its way down there. Funny that seal does not come with the common seal replacement kit. Im going to check tomorrow to see If I can get that seal alone. My concern is that after I drive for another hour one way to get that seal. Am I only going to put it on just to find out that the shaft is pitted to much by the rust to seal again? I am so tired of buyin ****!!!!!!
