water pump oil seal

we were putting a new gasket on my friends 650 brute water pump and we noticed the oil seal behind the impeller was cracked. we pulled it out and cant seem to get the new one to set in there like the old one did it just slides in but wont stay. its got two little notches in it is it supposed to compress the spring and then turn to lock it or do you just drop it in and put the impeller back on?

thanks

just pretty much slides on, it should just kinda stick after you pass the 2 notches, you don't turn it though.

just line up the notches on the seal with the two on the piece sticking up and it should just pretty much slip right on. The notches just hold it on for assembly purposes, once you put the impeller on it pushes down on the seal

ok cause it was real hard to pull out. and its kind of a spring in behind it. so i just put it in place loose and screw the impeller back on and it will seat the seal. cause right now i can just turn the cover upside down and the seal falls right out. is this right?

The spring thing is part of the seal, if you have them separated, not good

I'm not sure which one you talking about.
There are three seals.
Starting from the inside.
Oil seal
Mechanical seal.
And the one on the backside of the impeller.
The Mechanical one has the spring that pushes against the impeller seal. It has a pressed fit,and needs to be pressed in or knocked into place with a large socket.
To replace the inner oil seal,the side cover should be removed.
The impeller seal,just needs to be pushed in with your fingers.
None of them should fall out,unless there is another problem.

yes just press it in, you are talking about the spring loaded seal, if it's new it has a little blue sealer around where it goes into the cover....use a socket or whatever that fits over the guts and just pushes on the metal body
