It didn't appear to be compressing, but perhaps it did. There is a sticky blue sealant on the inside of the seal which binds it to the shaft, preventing any possible movement. The first time I did it, the seal did not compress. When I got the shaft in all the way, with the gear flush with the housing, I should have stopped. I gave it a couple of more turns for good measure and that's when I compressed the seal. After that the shaft was too tight and wouldn't spin freely.

The seal does not compress enough to damage it when you pull the shaft through using washers. I used a little light grease on the shaft and it pulled through quite easily. The tightest part of the assembly is the center of the water seal where the "blue goo" is, so you are only pulling against the center of the seal. However when you remove the broken shaft you are putting all the pressure on the water seal and the first thing you hear is a little crack as the seal disintegrates.

OK, I think I heard that crack sound, I thought I had pulled the shaft through a little too far, maybe .010", so I put the assembled housing & shaft back on my Drill Press to push the shaft back just a bit.
I thought I heard something crack.
That is probably when I ruined the seal, as once fully re-installed my pump leaked coolant right away.

Nothing left to do but try again.....
Thanks all for your patience, and input.

Team, I wonder if you received all the parts. Normally the new seal comes with a new spacer bush. Furthermore the seal should not be really compressed when you pull it through with a bolt and washers as the shaft seal is on the bit that is supported by the spacers. It could of course be that the shaft is 'sticky' on the new oil seal, but a bit of oil on the shaft should prevent that.
It is important that the gearwheel part ends up against the housing. There should be no clearance between the big gear and the housing. If there is the pump can not work. Normally the gearwheel with shaft will then be pushed in place once fitted against the main engine housing, but then your pump seal will have problems. I had an old pump on the bike, but bought a used one complete on fleabay and refurbished it with new seals. No real issues and it works like a charm. Just don't do it on the morning after the evening before ;-)

The stack of washers sits on the small end of the seal, and as soon as I started tightening the nut against those washers, that seal completely compressed.

That was my first choice. I went to my local dealer. The cute little parts chick showed me a diagram on their computer. The entire pump assembly was indicated as such by a couple of large brackets including all the exploded components. I asked for and received assurance that everything within the brackets was included in the assembly, which had one all-inclusive part number. The price was about $300. I paid up front and waited 10 days for the special back-ordered part to come from Germany. When it arrived it was only the cast housing. The real parts guy said someone screwed up; the computer showed that the assembly wasn't available. I explained my assurance and was promptly given a refund. I hope you do better. Good luck. Nice riding weather here in Canada these days! I've burned almost a whole tank of fuel now. Smile

The later pumps have more teeth, but that doesn't matter since they are only meshing with each other, and not with any other gear. The early type gears / shaft are available seperatly. I just added up the cost of the seperate parts and decided that for the extra few Pounds/
Euros/Dollars I would be better off with a new pump.

@ FAK - re compressing the seal. I can only conclude that the shaft was difficult to get through the oil seal. The compression of the seal to a certain level will not harm the seal as long as the force applied is regular and slowly build up. The water seal holds two ceramic rings which are spring loaded to keep them in contact. Instead of having a seal running over the shaft the shaft has a stationary part and the housing has a stationary part. Both have a ceramic running face that is spring loaded to keep them in contact. It is not difficult to do (really!) just take your time and go slow. If stuck, don't force, but ask. Or spent loads of money and buy a new pump.

Hi fellaz, well I finally got around to re-building my water / oil pump again.
After much discussion here, and taking notes, I have a functionial pump once again.
I replaced both oil & water seals, got rid of the original cast impeller, and went with the "newer style" little bushing & stamped steel impeller.
The second time around I was much better equipped, and the job went very easily.
So, from now on, whoever still has the old cast impeller and needs to re-build the pump, I say skip that part, and the job will be a one hour affair. (The cast impeller needs to be milled down by 3.8mm to work with the new type water seal)

My road test revealed no leaks.

Thanks to Diver, ReneZ, Avenger GT, and of course Crazy Frog for all their help.

Glad to hear it. I first knew I had a problem when changing the oil. Oil came out looking OK but when I dropped the filter cover a gush of water came out. Since rebuilding the pump I filled it with cheap 15W40 Diesel oil I had laying around. I wanted to be sure the repair was good and not waste good oil if it wasn't, and also flush out the crankcase and clean her out a bit. Between the rain and my to-do list I haven't yet got 500km on her, but when I do, very soon I'll put some good oil in her. Now I need to find some black crash bars. Anybody?

Back on the road just over a week and 300 odd miles. New pump is a little different to the old one in that the gears have smaller teeth, and the small gear is smaller, and the large gear larger, meaning that the water pump impeller turns more slowly. Probably makes no difference to water circulation as the vanes on the steel impeller are deeper than the old cast one so it takes a bigger "bite". May even help to avoid cavitation at high revs.
Anyway so far so good, I even fixed a small but annoying oil leak on the timing chain cover which was there since I got the bike over five years ago. I know I'm lazy, but if it's not something that will cause the bike ( or car ) to stop up on the road I tend to tolerate it till I can get round to fixing it.

Assuming that is the actual gear and shaft, and not a typical example, I would be more concerned about the scores around the gear face, how/why they are there and condition of the casing. Gear pumps rely on minimal end clearance to prevent bypass. I suggest you have a really close look at the mating components of the assembly, some lapping may be required to get back to tolerance. The engine may have gone for extended periods between oil filter changes, in which case the filter bypass valve may have been opening.

Haynes manual states that there are no service limits given, and also no operating pressures are stated, only the minimum pressure range that causes the oil pressure light to come on (3 - 7 psi).
As for the pump internal end clearances, I suggest for a gear pump of that size you need to aim for aroun 0.05 mm (0.002") maximum end clearance (gear face to cover). Check it using Flexi-gauge, do you know the stuff ? Looks like plastic spaghetti and is available in different measurement ranges. Place it in the space (hold with grease), assemble components dry, dismantle and use the scale on the packet to measure the flattened width, which translates to the thickness. The final oil pump assembly must be done very carefully in respect to achieving an oil tight joint at the front engine face. This is a high pressure joint (full pressure before the relief valve). BMW states 3Bond 1209 I think. I used Loctite 515 Master Gasket with the mating surfaces primed with Loctite Primer T and allowed to cure. Do not touch the primed surfaces before applying the 515.
Good luck, hope this helps.

I can only speak from my own experience with my water/oil pump rebuild. I tried twice to effect a seal without priming, but no luck, oil still weeped from the joint, can be felt by poking little finger in the hole the oil pressure switch wire emerges from.
The primer chemically etches the surfaces, preparing them for the curing process for the 515 Master Gasket.
I experimented with the effectiveness of the primer by applying it to 2 zinc plated bolt heads then applying the 515 and allowing to cure, vs just applying the 515 to 2 other bolt heads. The difference in force required to break the seal is quite amazing.
Loctite products cure by removing the air (anearobic curing process).
I couldn't obtain the 3Bond product, so the Loctite had to do, that was 2 years ago, no problems since.

Now I have all of the issues sorted and had a good ride on the bike today it has decided I need to spend more time with it by dumping some oil on the garrage floor. From the hole in the water pump.



Being a low km 85 model I expect the water pump shaft will be the old style so I have a question. Has anybody cut the thread off the end and drilled and tapped it to take a bolt? I don't have it apart yet so don't yet know if the design makes this possible.

I'll almost gaurantee you have a leak at the joint between the pump casing and the engine. The hole you speak of is where the wire for the oil pressure switch threads through and when the joint leaks oil runs around the pump casing and collects in that void space. This happened to me 3 times when I rebuilt my water/oil pump. In the end I managed to get a seal by using Loctite Master Gasket 515 and preparing the surfaces with Loctite Primer T. The manual states a 3Bond product (can't remember the number).

Remember, this joint is under full pump pressure, unlike most other joints on the engine, that's why a high pressure sealant which is not brittle is required. Don't try normal RTV silicone, it will leak, and so will Permatex (both my experience). Hope this helps.

Could be that I`m just a very lucky guy, had this problem 16 years ago.

And did try 3 or 4 different sealants (did not have the recommended one at hand),
all started to leak after some time.

The last one I did try was Permatex blue RTV, at this day the pump is still dry.

Dredging up an old thread to ask "Would Permatex High Heat Red RTV possibly work to bond the pump assembly to the engine block (given Permaex Blue worked at least in Inge's case)?" Reason is I have this in the chemicals drawer in my workshop.

I have used it for that exact same job and all is well with the pump still, just be careful with the oil drain hole.

I am a bit too far from home to check my sealant draw but used a red sealant on the water pump that I think was Permatex Red. It came via a big company that used radial engines which was used to seal against oil not coolant so should be good.

From the images below (in your 2nd attempt) I'd say your waterpump shaft is 'toast', will not seal successfully, and will tear up a new seal.
