Just replaced the seals and shaft in my 03's water pump. Indy gave me the parts list and if I would have ordered the numbers he gave me everything would have gone smooth, BUT, I didn't. Anyway I did it and if I can, anyone can.

Here are the part #'s and some photos to go along with it.

Parts to order:

#5GR-12458-00-00 SHAFT, IMPELLER
#93109-11073-00 OIL SEAL (water side seal)
#93102-12321-00 OIL SEAL (SD 12-22-5 HS)
#5TA-15462-00-00 GASKET, CRANKCASE COVER 3

I started by draining the coolant and taking off the header pipe.

Then removed the side case.

Here is a photo of the outer water seal and impeller with the shaft already removed. The shaft just pulled out and the inner oil seal hammers out with a punch along with the bearing. The water seal popped out easy

Here is a photo of the bearing with shaft still in.

Here are the groves that everyone keeps talking about wearing into the shaft. The old one is on the left and the new one is on the right(It will be obvious)

I hope this helps somebody. I am a coward when it comes to this kind of stuff but it was easy.

A few years back I installed the outer u-seal in backwards and it leaked like crazy. It took me three or four tries before I realized what I was doing wrong.

I had to make a few phone calls to make sure I had them in correctly. I found two threads in the search that talked about what dirrection they went in and they contradicted each other.

Can anyone tell me then, which way this outer oil/water seal is placed? the links for the photorial no longer work so I dont know which way to put this thing in!
thanks everybody.

Indy says that the spring side is away from the pressure.
Other people say spring side toward the pressure.

When I did mine I did not listen to Indy and I did mine with the springs toward the pressure. Well guess what!! It leaks when below 30 degrees. I have the new seals and pretty soon I am going to do it over again.

I am not sure which is correct so I will try both

You will get a drip out of the weap hole in the bottom of the water pump housing.

Instead of saying pressure lets say towards the fluid.
