    Pump grease slightly milky?

    Hello all

    Pulled my pump tonight to put in a new wear ring (50hrs old, no gouges just normal 'use' wear)

    while it was off i though wise to inspect the bearings / grease
    and i discovered the grease slightly milky in parts but the bearing still appears clean and free.

    I have scraped all the grease out and the orings look good.

    Should i just fill it with oil and inspect in a few hours
    or should i be replacing the front seal?

    If so i believe the bearing needs to be removed and basically a whole pump overhaul would be wise?

    thanks
    Luke

    It would be either leak from front seal or from o ring side... Mine leaked from the front seal.
    Good idea to run a kit through it.

    Since you already have it out I would replace the seal and the oring. Water got in there from one of those two places.

    does the pump shaft need to be pressed out to get to the seal?

    Is the seal a seadoo specific seal or do you think id be able to go to my local bearing shop and get one?

    also, anyone know how much oil i should run? there was a good thread but cant find it.

    2 ounces of oil, or 1/3rd full from memory.

    what year is the ski.
    I'm not sure if there is alternatives other than WSM or SBT but they look pretty well made for this purpose only, you can remove the seals without pressing the shaft to change the seals, it goes (c_clip-seal-spacer-seal-o_ring) and then depending on year a removable collar and oring.

    Took the impeller off and removed c-clip

    Seal seems pretty stuck in there, any ideas for removal?

    the metal one presses in there, it also sits in an oring in the housing, I usually have the shaft and bearingout

    So press the shaft out with the bearing seal and all?

    shop manual says to remove the seal etc first but no instructions on how...
