radiator fluid loss

OK, I came back from a day trip. I notice something had leaked on the trailer floor. It was anti freeze. After inspection it appeared that the fluid came from a small clear hose on the water pump (poss overflow). I didnt notice it leaking while i was driving it. but seemed to leak while it was not running and on the trailer. any ideas what caused this.

Sounds like a leaking water pump seal to me. Probably not leaking enough to notice while driving, but leaking none the less.

I would guess the same......That should be an easy enough fix.......tell your "BYC rhino wrencher" he has work to do......

I think the hardest party will pulling out the tank........It only has a couple of small bolts. But I think the tank is in the way.

You need to remove the water pump from the engine to do this job. It can be done, but it is tight quarters.
The fuel tank does NOT need to be removed, although access and visibility would be better with it gone.
The water pump has two seals. I have never had much luck getting them out of the Rhino water pump without wrecking them. I would replace both seals and be done with it.
You will need to drain the oil in the engine. When the water pump is removed, it is below the oil level and oil will pour out the side of the engine.

When you reinstall the water pump, you'll need to line the end of the impeller shaft up with the corresponding drive on the end of the oil pump shaft.

Get er done!

Rhino Water Pump

I'm having the same problem and removed the bolts that hold the water pump on but on the front part came off. Do i need to force the back off? Do you have to take the side of the motor completely off, or just the water pump?

Thanks,
JG
