Hell all, I am slowly getting the 84 ASPY GL1200back together. Rebuilt the carbs, check the wiring, flushed and filled the entire coolant and oil system and put it to the test. She fired right up and sounds good for her old age. Not bad for having 130,000 miles on her.
However, when I let her get up to normal operating tempature I notice a high whining/ticking noise coming from the front part of the engine and now a redish liquid coming from the weep hole.
My question is, before I purchase a water pump and start tearing down the front of the engine cover, what should I perform to determine if the pump needs replacing or if it just needs new O-Rings?
Thanks for your help.
