New and need help

I have a 2004 Rhino I bought for my wife and kid and trust me when I say this thing has been a pain. An hour after we got home it overheats because the water pump seal was bad so it dumps water in the oil, ends up costing me a complete top end rebuild,shortly after the rebuild it breaks an axle (the axle was already cracked found out later)Along with all wheel bearings locking up one after the other, and also every time she rides it something else goes wrong. She is afraid to ride anymore because of the money issue with it.Now ended up with an oil leak and water leak again, So the little tube off the water pump is dumping the water out. WHY???? Also the oil tubes that go from the oil filter housing up to the head it has 3 brass washers on it all the sudden started dumping oil on the ground this all happens at once whats up with that? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

first thing the water leaking out of the hose sounds like the waterpump seal is leaking again... maybe nicked the seal???? did you put oil on the seal when installing it?? on the oil leak did you replace the copper washers when you had the head off?? if not replace the copper washers!!! sometimes they will leak when you take them apart..... good idea to replace them everytime you have it apart!! keep your head up you will get it worked out!!!

Maybe just start off with another 660 motor... they can be had for AROUND $2K gently used. Give or take $500

In any case, sounds like someone screwed you on the sale!



NIIICE!
