Today I removed my 831100 water pump housing to put in a new water pump and found this sludge in the bottom of the housing. It looked chunky in places but when I rubbed the pieces between my fingers it gradually broke down into thick oil like sludge. Anybody know how this stuff gets in there and maybe how to prevent it from getting in there? The last photo is my way of keeping track of the different bolt sizes in the housing. I printed the pic from Goldwing Docs and taped it to a piece of cardboard. I punched a hole in the cardboard where each bolt goes and put the bolts in the holes to keep track of them that way. Thanks in advance for your comments. JR

Bill, that's an interesting point you made about the different oil and their additives. I used Valvoline mc oil for the first change and Delo 400 for the 2nd. Since using the Delo there seems to be more "oil/dust" on the outside bottom of the engine area so I'm planning to go back to the Valvoline. I can send you my old pump no problem. You planning on rebuilding it? I haven't received my new one yet but expect it this week.

It still turns. And the play was pretty noticeable. Now I'm kinda glad that speedo drive gear broke otherwise I wouldn't be doing this. I hope to get the old pump out this evening.
