I bought one of these kits a while back for my 81, doesn't need it yet, but I like to have parts on hand, it looks pretty good, don't know about hte quality until I try it.

You are most likely looking at the o-ring, gasket set,plus seal for water pump going to main shaft.

Most likely does not have mechanical seal for the impeller in the kit[ Honda does not have a # for it, nor can you order it from honda]. The seal # from U.S. Seal is ps162. Bearing are from timken#1000c can be had from most parts stores and you need 2.

Consider this, if you buy a water pump from mother honda you get, an impeller made out of steel with new houseing and seal. If it leaks within warranty they will most likely replace it[ maybe]. If you rebuild your own water pumpand it starts leaking you have the pleasure of rebuilding it yourself at your own cost. I rebuilt my own pump and now I am going to replace it asap. It is leaking after 3000 miles.

Original water pump lasted about 25000 miles and 25 years. Do the math first. This is one time I would say REPLACE the water pump. Litfuse
Ps you still need to buy that set you have listed in the post

This looks like the Texas Water Pump Thread, So I want to join in .

The other guys have given you the correct scoop on the kit you are looking at. They do not include the mechanical seal that you would need to "repair" a water pump and Litfuse is the only guy I have heard of that has attempted to repair one. If his had failed now, then I would agree with him to bite the bullet and replace it with a new Honda OEM pump.

You can get a new pump online for around $110 USD plus shipping and add the kit for another $25-$35 dollars. Then you will be good to go for another 20 years.

Galveston Honda, down the street from youmight have one on the shelf. If not they can order it on Tuesday and have on Friday. They will charge you about $140 for it.

I have bought the installation seal/o-ring/gasket kits from this fella on ebay....

>> Georgefix seal kit<<. He is a great guy to deal with for lots of other repair parts and he ships USPS in just a couple of days real cheap.

Hey litfuse, I would be interested in figuring out what failed when you replace your pump. I remember years ago trying to repair Chevy water pumps with the same results. My guess is the faces of the ceramic seals never aligned perfectly and resulted in a drippy pump.

Don't know if it's been said yet, but welcome to the finest Goldwing site in the world!

Just a gentle reminder to you, fishologist, is to make sure that you put in silicate free coolant when you get done. You probably already knew that but what the heck, if it saves you from undoing what you're doing, so be it.


I've read that if you go to a Honda CAR dealer,you can buy the OEM coolant relatively cheaply. Myself, I use EvansNPG+ waterless coolant in mine.http://www.evanscooling.com/html/home1.htm


You also might want to consider replacing your thermostat, radiator cap, and hoses while you're at it. If you really want to go the whole nine yards, you could consider gettingyour radiator flushed at a local radiator shop. This is preventative maintenance and the cost is reasonable. If all of this has been done in the not too distant past, please dis-regard.

Regards,

Hobie

I am once again finding myself between jobs so I will continue to run the water pump. It is only leaking anti-freeze so I am keeping an eye on it. But will post pictures and cause as soon as I can afford it. Litfuse
