Water pump mechanical seal replacement

Post by Dornford » Fri Jul 07, 2017 11:26 am

I am about to replace the water pump mechanical seal (and oil seal) on my KR-1S. Do I need to remove the clutch cover and the right hand engine cover to do this, or can I just remove the water pump cover and remove and replace the seals from there?
Any advice gratefully received. I have the manual, but it is a little vague, especially the bit about not inserting the mechanical seal too far to avoid blocking the coolant drain passage. I have never had to worry about pushing anything in too far before.
