Iv taken upon myself to do a quick test on a newly installed mechanical seal. I searched high and low for info on leakage tests that have been done after the seal was replaced and i could not find any. So i decided to come up with a way of test it myself. The reason for the replacement of the seal was because of a coolant leak into the oil. The sealed bearing looked good as did the impeller and shaft so none of them were replaced.
Right so first things first.
Install the new seal.
Next get some gasket paper and cut it to the size in the picture.
Place the gasket around the water pump.
Next put the clutch side cover on an install the 3 bolts around the water pump. No need to install them all.
Next thing is to seal off the location for the radiator pipe. Use anything that will hold the water. I just used plastic and a hose clip.
