2010, FE450, how to chg water pump seals?
Sorry for the stupid question but I am mildly confused on this one, I have changed many a seal on the KTM RFS engines no problem and figured this was the same, hoping you guys can help me out a little? I did search forum first but not quite getting it.
I have a 2010 FE450(and one of Dales tanks!), water has started to come out of the weep hole. I have pulled off the water pump cover, the nut, impeller and disc and now I think I am looking at a pressed in bearing with a green cover? Before I proceed I wanted to check. Does this bearing need to be replaced and if so I assume you have to take off the RHS engine cover and press the bearing out? Also, I was looking for the shaft seal rings so I assume they are housed behind this bearing on the shaft and these definitely need to be replaced. These are the parts I think I need to fix this.
