gen 4 oil pump leak

Any one have picture of which way oil seal should face in oil/water pump housing? Dealer may have installed upside down and no way to verify..normally the back of the seal would face fluid but this was opposite.. Service manual has no pictures of seal installed

plus the quality job the dealer did on the install, they scratched the housing all up removing the old seal because he doesn't know how to use his tools..of course gouges are not where the oil leak is coming from sadly..

No, but I looked in the manual and not sure what seal you're referring to. The oil pump itself didn't have a seal. The outer housing just uses an oring. You just put the oring in the groove and lube it up. There is no direction for it.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

There's an oil seal under the two piece water pump mechanical seal.

As to which way it should be, probably as the OP said, open side to oil pump

I was PMing with cnrjames about this last night. I see now what he's referring to and agree with what you say too. Open end towards the oil pump. But again, I have no first hand experience with this.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
