I have a Prarie 650 V2 motor. I was loosing all my coolant out through the weep hole. So I took off the water pump cover and discovered the mechanical seal to be broken. I replaced the seal and re-assembled. The weep hole is still leaking no matter if it is running or sitting still. What is my issue? Thank you.

Seal not installed correctly or broke during install, seal contaminated with oils or dirt during assembly, shaft bent or bearing has play. These are the main probable reasons.

It's easy to assemble incorrectly, and even easier to break the new seal on reassembly.

After I installed the impellar, I started it to see if it was spinning (without the cover on). All looked good. I don't believe that I installed it incorrectly. Is that all it could be?

I was wanting to give an update. I had some time to look at it again. Dumba** me broke the new seal when I installed it. I did not use a deep well socket. Thanks to all of you for your help.
