    Default D2 project, ended up with broken water pump

    Pushed some top soil off for brother in law. All most finished and started feeling some water splatter. Got off and checked things out. Saw some water coming from water pump. Wasnít too bad, checked water in radiator and decided to finish up. Got the old girl home and shut down and water pump has issues 🙁. Here some pics of the job, and a video of her warming up and of the water pump issue at the end. 41555BBF-2CA6-4AEF-9EF7-88D2CE3FA6E3.jpg8D30267C-D236-449F-B78A-6B5778FC15B2.jpg

    Wow! Thatís a first for me....never seen one with even one bad bearing much less both of them.

    They are normally over greased and the seals blown out so that grease has filled the inside of the pulley hub and the weep hole on the other end!

    They never should be over greased if they have a relief valve properly installed.

    I have found many relief fittings have been replaced by another grease zerk!

    Yup two grease jerks in this. Not over greased. Weep hole was plugged and some water got into bearing area, so that accelerated the issue. After cleaning everything up, didnít like the looks of the shaft. Climbed in top of the barn where my spares are. Pulled water pump for spare engine. Looks very original, all bearings and seals have cat numbers. Shaft is in near perfect condition. Now to locate the parts i need

    Cat should have all the parts, I did my D2 water pump 2 years ago, be careful pressing in the new seal, it is easy to deform the brass.

    It has been suggested that would be a good job for sealed bearings, I agree, be leery buying Cat Classic Parts bearings if you go the unsealed bearing route, they are half the price but have fewer balls in the bearing race than the original, worth spending the extra $20 for the heavier load type.

    You did well to get the pump out without removing the radiator, its a snug fit in there.

    4B4550 is the relief valve, should go in the bottom hole, check your parts book.
