K5 Water Pump Seal Reprise
Yes, me again regarding the water pump seal.
I chalked up my first attempt to doing something wrong even though I can't figure out what that would be. So I tried again.
Still a leak from the weep hole, actually a steady drip.
I followed all the published procedures to the letter ensuring that the seal was not damaged when installing. The pump shaft has no pitting and shows no wear.
Anyone else run into this problem?
Do I need to buy the BMW installation tool?
Is there a heat-cycle need for the seal to seat?
Suggestions? I'm running out of options and don't want to keep putting in seals.
