    2017 Wake 155 Water Pump Seals leaking

    What about how these "particles" seem to damage water pump seal and cause it to leak? On these 2014 Wake 155's, the coolant bottle was 1/2 full at new, then at 130 hours it was empty. Leaking was observed at water pump weap hole. And Dealer said this is NOT normal, which then they got into engine and said all those metal particles wern't normal either.

    Now I have 2017 Wake 155's, and the same rate of coolant loss is happening. I'm at 78 hours and both are less than half full now. Which would follow suit to be empty at 130 hours. Haven't checked weep hole yet.
    On these, I changed oil at 10, 20, and 50 hours and saw no evidence of metal particles.

    So What's Up with the Water Pump Seals?

    Is this a problem since 4-tec insception that has yet to be re-engineered?

    waterpump is driven off the oil pump shaft and not an easy fix
    black junk in the coolant is the classic sign of head gasket failure (its a black gasket)
    there is no weep hole on the cover, the part you can see is just the thermostat housing/pump cover

    2017 Wake 155 Water Pump Seals leaking

    Chris, YES there is a weep hole on the right side of the PTO housing. Water (open loop) /coolant from it means the water pump seal #5 is bad, and oil leaking from it the oil seal #4 behind the water pump seal is bad.Click image for larger version.

    My water pump seal was leaking from weep hole (a lot), damaged from the damn zinc anode on my Riva open loop housing. I removed the PTO housing, pressed out the shaft, removed both seals, pressed in new shaft and both seals. It was really no big deal as long as you have access to a small press!
