    :hello: I've found out when installing a water pump it is best to install it with out the cover that way you can rotate the propeller so that the shafts slot will seat into the motor. Also now I've been putting a really super thin coat of gray RTV on the pumps cover O-ring because they like to move if you don't. I don't like using any type of sealant on O-rings or gaskets but sometimes you need to just to hold them in place. IMG_4289.JPG

    :hello:Why don't you put in the pump and turn it completely till it snaps in? Not possible? Before you can look for the right position and turn the propeller so that the angle for correction is minimum. I'd prefer to assemble the pump away from the engine coz easier IMHO.

    :hello: You can't turn the motor A or the pump with the cover in place. I like doing things the hard way anyway always. :laughing7: The only hard part is getting up off the floor. :laughing7: I do turn the shaft's notch & try to line it up over onto the stem but with all the grunting & trying to breath my eyes cross & after some cursing it finally goes in. :laughing7: The cursing always gets it done.

    :hello:I cannot remember where here but I have in my mind that somebody wrote '...then turn pump ???'; when I found it I'll tell you.

    On the other hand: I don't think Mama Kaw built in the pumps the way you suggested...:dontknow:

    The only hard part is getting up off the floor. :laughing7:

    :hello: Screw that pill stuff. About 7 years ago or so I blew out my back really bad & my Doctor prescribed me Oxycontin to take it every 4 hours along with a mussel relaxer. I don't even remember that Week. :laughing7:

    :hello: I received the 12 mechanical ceramic seals in the mail today. They are the 35 mm lip to lip ones & are made in the UK. See pic #2 for part #. IMG_4786.JPG IMG_4787.JPG IMG_4788.JPG IMG_4789.JPG IMG_4796.JPG IMG_4794.JPG IMG_4795.JPG Some time in March of 2018 I will rebuild the 7 water pumps that I have in stock unless someone needs one sooner. For someone who wants spare pumps it will be an extra $50. $50 is the average price of the water pumps that I have been buying off of E-bay. I'll be buying a few more in the next few weeks including some for the 80s ZL 600.

    :hello: Price has changed a bit for the 35 mm mechanical ceramic seal. Price $16.26 x 12 = 195.12 + 14.95 shipping = 210.07 div 12 = $17.50 each. If anyone wants pumps done send your pump to me with out the cover. Also if you want a spare waterpump it will be an extra $50.00 to cover the price of the pumps that I bought off of E-bay.

    :hello: I cleaned up this thread & deleted several of my posts mostly due to the finding of the 35 mm mechanical ceramic seal. :clapping:.
