I don't have a drawing as I used my stock one as a reference when machining the new shaft. Also I tapped the weep hole and treaded a nipple and attached a clear hose and routed it to a catch bottle. this way I can monitor if it leaks during a ride. I'll remove and inspect it next winter! I hope this helps someone who has the resources to machine there own shaft.

Hi, I have an 04 yfz450 and just noticed mine is leaking, I pulled the cover off and I see the water pump impeller, How do I take it off it seems tight and does it have reverse threads? I went today also to Malcolms Smiths and all they gave me were 2-oil seals a copper crush washer and a housing seal is that all I am going to need? Thanks for your help......Steve
