Well guys I’m certainly in the right place with this forum. @Calum I realise and understand your thinking, you always offer a way to still ride the bike to enjoy it. 😃
I just want to get shot of the bodges, turned screw heads, snapped bolts and quick fixes. @oldman thank you for the contact, I really appreciate it. I’m hoping both the pumps l got hold of work, then l can send one off to be refurbished. @NINJA thank you for your kind words, l say great minds think alike...... and congregate in similar places!
I should be able to take it out this weekend, even my new rear fender for AJ Sutton has turned up, that has got to be good luck! 🤣👍
You will need to bleed it if you disconnected the pipe from oil tank to pump. Its easy , on the side of pump is small blind rubber pipe with clip . Let bike idle , and put some clean container under the pump then pull that hose ,oil will leak uneven , manually turn the oil pulley to full , when oil leaking nice and even there should be no air in it. Then just refit the small pipe and clip and thats it. Tip the oil back in tank 👍🏼
Best to have the clear pipes
@calum - I have had it all apart and have ordered a new kit for the impeller and seal.
Whilst I’m in the clutch area l have ordered a new clutch and spring set.
Fingers crossed this will solve this problem!
Thanks again for your help...... to the next bodge! 😳👍
This is my water pump impeller with the pump seal welded to it, I bought the Athena seal from PJME and I didn’t realise it didn’t fit correctly till I fired up my bike and this is what was screeching so I would advise if replacing the water pump seal use OEM!
