Crush washer sizes

Post by Barracuda3077 »



Hello everyone, thanks for the useful insights from the articles and forums. I have inherited my dad's 82 GL1100 I. I'm replacing the water pump and gaskets due to a mixture of coolant and oil leaking from the weeping hole. The gasket kit that I purchased from Honda, did not include any of the "crush washers". Can anyone help me with the sizes of the crush washers that are used in replacing the water pump ( I believe that there are 3 crush washers of the same size). Thanks for the help!

I replaced my water pump a couple of months ago on 83 1100.
I do not recall any crush washers being used.
Look at the schematics and see if there are really crush washers.

Three aluminum crush washers used on the bolts that fasten the pump to the housing. My kit included them, but maybe all kits don't. Don't know the size, but maybe online parts lists would give the size. They are shown in picture #83 in this link:

Take the bolt to ACE and buy a washer to fit..or order from Honda using the parts fiche for the water pump.

I found out they are 6mm crush washers. I talked with a mechanic at Honda and he said 6.5mm crush washers will also work. Thanks for everyone’s help! Keep the rubber side down!!! :D
