Waterpump Tech Article

Postby Joecop » Sat Mar 17, 2012 7:35 pm



Hi,

I joined this group today after having reviewed and using Wing Admin's "How to change a waterpump" post. I can't thank you enough for the post! I basically joined to say, "Thank you!".

I completed the job minutes ago (1980 GL1100I) I did not remove the radiator or worry about the top 3 inch bolts, contrary to your posting Wing they will clear the frame on a 1980. Also another short cut is to not take off the bottom radiator hose but unbolt the waterneck an just move it forward.

Still this posting was the best I have seen on the net and makes me wonder why I continue to buy service manuals! I lurk many a website but belong to few and maintain a 76 Harley, 77 Kaw, 72 Honda cb750 in a Amen frame with a girder front and a GL1100.

Thanks Joe

Glad you liked it. Quite often you can get by with shortcuts like that - I know when I changed my belts on my 1100, I did not remove the radiator, and while it can be done, it sure makes it a lot more difficult, and you'll end up with more scraped knuckles.

Having just put belts on, I could see me trying to not take the radiator off. But being so new to the bike I would probably take it off. Anyway, I'm still talking up that article to the wrench friends I have. Thanks again, but I'm sure u hear that a lot. You should consider putting together a manual. If u do I would like the first copy!
