Nice tip, that, Bushy.

Well, I am having difficulty fending off frustration, because the crankcase still fills with coolant!! I have now had the cover on/off several times; and even though I am using the Orangeberg shrink tube to help protect the brown water pump shaft seal, which seems fine, I guess I should replace that as well as the shaft O ring.

Does the seal just pull out from the front?

Oh, also, there is now a few drops of coolant coming from the weep hole. I'm not even sure how that can happen??? Grrrrr.

One tip I have discovered (likely known by all others!!) - If the clutch cover is difficult to separate from the motor, one can remove the outer clutch cover, and then partially replace those 4 collar screws and 1 or 2 of the water pump screws just a few turns. Then use those screws to help walk the clutch cover off the motor, stopping every few mm to lightly tap the kick starter shaft back into place.

At any rate, I would appreciate any other thoughts on my coolant leak.

Thanks again guys.

i think the water can only get into the engine through the pump in any significant amount if the water seal is leaking and the weep hole is partly clogged .. dust dirt etc

apart from the big o ring you replaced there is only the head gasket and the orings on the bottom of the liner seal.

I have pulled the water pump water seal out the front a few times
