Torn rubber seal
I have a 2006 RXP engine with the rubber seal / boot that goes from the splined interface on the motor to the pump drive shaft that is torn.
Now it looks like some oil is coming out of that area.
Is it difficult to replace that seal? Anyone else had this problem?
Thanks in advance.

It just clamps onto the PTO cover using an Oetiker clamp. You have to remove the pump and drive shaft to replace it. It can be a challange if you've never done that before.
I'd replace the boot and find a worm gear clamps to replace the Oetiker.

I wish it was 43... I think it is #5. I will put a picture up in a bit.

Mine tore on on 05 RXp remove pump and drive shaft to replace - Kind of spendy - I don't think you can just order the rubber part.

part 5 in that picture looks like an oil seal behind the water pump

yeah, #5 is the water pump impeller seal. you probably need 43. it is essentially the rear main seal. expensive, yes. difficult to replace, no. you cant use worm gear clamps though. they will tear the rubber, and you will need to index them so that they don't interfere with the sc and other surrounding items. even the oteker's are a tight fit.

Here is the (low quality) picture of the thing that ripped:

For reference, the waterpump is to the right of this seal. It is on the drive train.
