And I thank you all again for your help. We're heading back to Pennsylvania tomorrow, but will be back to this bike in mid-August.

In the meantime, I'll be looking for o-ring/seal kits, just in case I mashed one (or more), when I replaced the water pump two years ago. I already have new front cover and water pump gaskets. Any suggestions for sources would be welcome Thanks.
Just do not forget to replace the oil pump seal. Get the parts from Honda, don't even think about aftermarket parts for this job.

Edit; thinking on it more, remembering more, that o-ring does also keep oil out of the void.

You can also reuse your water pump and see how long it will last .
On my Gl1000 is has worked perfect for at least 8 year since i changed out the oil seal and reused the old water pump . BUT i dont ride that bike much and only locally .IF i was using the bike for long distance riding i would have replaced the water pump .

That sounds like a good plan for me. I plan to change the oil seal and some o-rings and see how that goes. While I'll be 80 next year, I'm hoping to stay physically (and mentally) fit enough to ride for a few more years. We'll see how that goes too.

Thanks for your contributions to this post.

If you find an issue with the o-ring be it twisted, cut or missing then you might want to decide if you want to replace the oil pump seal. It is a little tricky as you have to drive it in with the lip going against the grain. I always cringe when I have to do this as I tend to have more issues putting them in when I face that type of situation. Of course if there is a stream or washed clean below the seal you have no choice. Just cross your fingers and be careful.

That oil pump seal should be replaced any time you do a water pump.

Normally I would agree with Dave. Pete it is your call. Given your age and ability if you feel confident enough changing it might be best. If it shows no signs of leaking it might not be a bad idea to leave well enough alone. It's a judgement call. If I were 80 and saw no indication that the seal is leaking I would leave it alone. Of course I'm just hoping to make it to 80. My riding days are winding down already.
