Which way do the seals go in on a Kawaski 450f water pump

Bes t double check with dealer but in 99% of bikes they go in with the springs facing away from each other - I am assuming you are meaning the oil and water seal that the impeller goes through??

I have water getting into my oil in the crank case but not likely through the head gasket becase the exhaust doen't smoke until the oil water mixture pukes out the brether tube on the crankcase

Hi mate I have no idea what bike your referring to as no information? But most water cooled engines would have two seals to seal the impeller shaft (which circulates the coolant) these seals usually one each side of the inside engine case where impeller goes through one of them holds oil out and the other holds water in hence they called oil and water seals if your sure not head gasket these seals are about the only other way water can get in
I love Yamaha motocross bikes and other MX bikes as they have a specially purpose built hole in the water pump area so when you see it seeping coolant out it tells you straight away needs new oil and water seals
if it is this seal usually only one or the other has gone but no one would replace one with out the other you will see what I mean if you ever replace them as is complete pain just to swap one - you definitely would not want to repeat later to change the other one.
check your impeller shaft also as groves in the shaft is usually why the seal goes in the first place (you may want to replace the shaft whilst you there)
good luck

hi, the seal in the water pump has failed, carefull removal and examination of the impeller shaft, seals and bearing will determing the pump condition, only then will you know if it is cost efective to repaire or replace the pump, you will also have to remove old engine oil, replenish with new, hope this helps you, paul

Water from weep hole under water pump housing. its not the housing gasket. i think its a seal behind the impeler is this a comon problem on the o6 is it easy to fix

hi,you are quite correct,it will be the seal behind the impellor,kawasaki and suzuki are famous for it,simply undo the nut holding the impeller on,remove the impeller,you will have to pry the seal out,when replacing the seal use a "loctite type"sealing compound to reseat the seal,hope thjis helps...cheers

Kawasaki KX250F 2006 model coolent leak

There are two seals on the impeller pump. Replace the seals an the leak is stopped. Put in a new cover gasket as well.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. Click on the "ENGINE COVERS" tab.

I have a 2002 kawasaki prairie 650. i think i have a blown head gasket on the rear cyclinder. how can i be sure it is a blown head gasket?

Check the seal behind your water impeller there are o rings back there if one of them goes bad you will leak antifreeze into oil, your impeller is run by the oil pump i believe, you should not see oil in the water also your bike will run fine but when hot will foul the plug with water look for white smoke sometimes and the smell of anti freeze on start up
i have a 400 4x4 doing the same thing new piston rings and top end now lossing water but runs great oil looks real thin
took to the dealer to fix this week will let you know how i make out.
