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??

Water pump leaks out weep hole in water pump when plugged in otherwise doesn't leak! Does this mean water pump seal is out?


Yes. Water pump seal is leaking. The weep hole keeps the water from getting to the bearing in the water pump.

I have an oil leak from a drain hole in front of engine.what could be the problem?


If the oil plug bolt is leaking you need a new aluminum sealing washer. There are no oil weep holes in the front of the motor. Is it the weep hole under the water pump? You probably have a bad water pump seal or a bad oil seal on the water pump shaft. Buy a new water pump and the K&L water pump gasket kit. The K&L gasket kit comes with all the gaskets, seals, and washers necessary to do the water pump replacement for a fraction of the cost of the OEM Honda individual gaskets, seals, and washers.

I have a 2003 VL 800 Suzuki. I have oil leaking from behind the water pump housing. And yes it is coming out of the small hole behind the water pump. Could this be the oil seal on the water pump? Steve


yes steve- this is the water pump by-pass hole. There is a secondary backup al behind it to stop the water entring the gearbox. Replace the waterpump seal. Most suzukis' use a mechanical seal. they are prity easy to change- although usually requires removal of the clutch cover. I always replace the mechanical seal, back up seal & the bearing all at once.If it is a standard seal type- be sure to ckeck the shaft of the impellor for groves worn in it where the seal contacts the shaft - in mechanical type seals this does not apply.
Hope this helps regards
Andrew

your water pump seal and oil seal have failed on the water pump shaft. Replace both seals noting which way the seals face. replace the water pump shaft if it is scored. Chaz- Moto DC

Why is there a water leak coming from the water pump?


i would say you answered your own question, if there is water leaking from the water pump i would say the water pump is leaking and it needs to be replced,either the bearing is bad and its leaking out the shaft,or the seal is bad and its leaking outta there either way you need a new water pump,check the belt for wear when you replace it,,
