Default Need Help RM125

     

I have a 86 RM125 and I have an oil/water issue. I am getting the gray goop out of the vent on the case under the water pump. I drained the tranny oil and there wasnt any water in it. I havent checked the radiator yet. Where can this oil be comming from? Is it possible for the oil to leak into the water, but not the water to go into the oil? Could it be comming from the crankcase gas/oil mix? Im looking for some pointers to look for before I start tearing this thing apart. Other than oil splooge comming out of the pipe, the bike is runng ok.

First off I drive a TJ too. Secondly I'm little confused on the water thing, do you mean coolant? And you haven't lost any coolant right? And there is no coolant in the oil, no grey looking crank case oil right?

I am confused as well. There is water in the radiator (long embarassing story), not coolant. It was dripping the grey stuff the last time I rode it, took it out today, water level was still at the top of the rad core, rode to warm up the oil, and drained it. The oil was just oil, no water. Got home too late to drain the water and see whats in there. I had the cover, cylinder and head off a while ago, and I seem to remember wondering if I got the impeller back in correctly.
Here is a pic of it. It is dripping from the hose that is dangleing from the vent under the waterpump. Hopefully this will help. By the way, it was already painted black and red when I got it.

That's the weep hole.
Just replace the waterpump seals and your problem will be over (Unless the waterpump shaft is scarred ) but you will be able to see that when you are replacing the seals.

also repalce the bearings. there like .80 cents to like 2.00 for the bearings. the waterpump seal could ahve been damaged from the bearings going bad, and regardless of fixung the problem the parts will only stay ok for like another few weeks, then your in the same position. also if those bearings went wrong, then the powervalve bearings could be shot also because there the drive gear for the waterpump.
