Good day,
No repair possible. No washer pumps are serviceable. They must be replaced with a new one.
The pump is easy to change, remove the 2 hoses and snap clips hold the pump on. Just pry the clips off and pull the pump off.
Look at the clip below, as to how to access it if you haven't gone that far yet.
The video isn't about changing the pump, but gets you to the area.

Onga 4352 Spa Pump is leaking from the opening in the bottom of the pump. I have opened it & siliconed the Oring seal but it continues to leak. Any suggestions?


I had a new pump brought to me once that continued to leak after replacing the shaft seal three times. Careful examination revealed a sand casting fault in the pump body. The water was leaking through the body of the pump. Have you replaced the shaft seal?

Yz 250 water pump leak


Hi mate this will be the oil & water seals the leak from weep hole is basically a warning light to tell you it needs replacing asap, you need to remove impellor, carefull not to lose the spacer washer behind it...then remove the water seal clean the surface it came from and replace with new seal. Now to do this 100% I would always replace the impeller shaft as the shaft wearing is usually what caused the seal to fail and I would also replace the oil seal which is the other side of case that you just changed the water seal (oil seal sits behind the small bearing) I would also consider replacing this bearing but maybe not critical? all up the impellor shaft the 2 seals and bearing last time I bought cost about $160... no special tools required just quite a bit of time required as you should really remove the outer engine case to access the impellor to undo it and to get to the oil seal and bearing, how ever I know guys do just open the water pump cover then rattle gun off the impellor only replace the water seal then install the impellor and cover back on then ride away! this will work and will fix the leak but is definitely the incorrect way to repair this and will be temporary fix but thought you may like to know this alternative as is very handy way to do it if your on a race meeting and just need to get through the last race or two.

hope this help cheers... Moto X Parts online.com

Replaced water pump seals twice on 06yz450 and they keep leaking


I would reccomend replacing both water pump shaft bearings and also the shaft if there is any sign of grooving on the shaft. Without looking at a diagram i am assuming that the water side of this bikes pump is a mechanical(ceramic) seal design . Sucessful replacement of these mechanical seals can be tricky. A few tips are: be certain that all case surface areas are clean with all old seal/sealing debris removed such as with sccotch brite. So that the seal will seat and seal properly in the case. NEVER allow your dirty/oily fingertips to touch either of the ceramic pieces of the seal in the contact area. Lubricate these ceramic pieces with a standard green type of coolant only upon assembly. Always use a regular green type of coolant in the system untill you are confident of the install and then change to another type if you are going to. Be aware that it is not uncommon for the mechanical(ceramic) type of seal to weep slightly during initial break in as the two halves seat to each other. This weepage should dissappear in a short period of running time.

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.

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

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

Coolant leak


without any more description than this can only guess as to where. The hose end can leak because it's not on properly,< loose, crooked , torn etc. Hose is attached to water pump and it can leak from seal around mounting point or the hole on bottom side of pulley shaft. If leak is from water pump then you should replace it,< to repair seal it has to be removed and putting a new one on is best to complete repair without possibly having it break you down soon after repairing seal>, if it is leaking from hole on pulley shaft it will have to be replaced.
