Water pump seal

Post by Nick_A »

I have been discussing with Keith and G on the announcements page, which I have been told was the wrong page. My entry was New member from England. Will continue the discussion on this page about a water pump seal which I am looking for.

These are some ideas in this site and from elsewhere Ducati related which give Cost Effective Alternatives to the genuine Ducati parts etc I cannot verify on fact. However with respect to the Gasket you seek I honestly think that a good quality silicon sealer would suffice maybe something like this

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RTV-Silicone- ... 1085655159 which works fine on my Vauxhall Combo van.


Fuel filters: BMW K100RS part number: 13 32 1 461 265 (8mm) or 16142325859, Purolator F20011, AC GF61, Fram G2, Motorcraft FG-2, Wix 33032, CarQuest E2036 (mid-80's Ford Ranger. Fram part number G2).

Oil filters for belt-drive engines: same as fitted to Citroen 2CV & Peugeot 205 & 309 - UFI part number (23.105.00) corresponds with; AC Delco FX0011 (was X4A); Motorcraft EFL 47; Champion H101; NAPA: 1352 (1352NAPA and 551352 on the box); Cooper Z64; Powertrain FL125; Fiaam FT4654, FT 4847 or PA7059; Purflux LS187; Fram PH6074 (was PH2839, PH2864A); Purolator ML16829C (was FC 103 or OC 5); Halfords HOF216; Tecafilter Ref OC5; K & N KN-153; Technocar R12, R72, R434; Knecht OC 5 (equivalent to Ducati #065149960 and #090549960); TJ FB2094; Mann & H W712/9, W712/11; Unipart GFE 201.

Carburettors and fuel system
89 900 and Paso with Webber carburetor, parts and overhaul kits are available from auto shops, also high velocity air filters to replace the standard air boxes well as the small filter to fit the crankcase breather.
Paso Dellorto carb conversions. Ski-Doo/Bombadier Snowmobile part # 570-134600 is a near perfect match, the important internal "rubber washer" that mates the carb and manifold is spot on.

907 ie. throttle position sensor (potentiometer), type PF09, is also used in Alfa Romeo 33 ie
906 Paso: Facet FSE574A.

Clutch

Clutch thrust bearings: If you have a dry clutch with a 28.5 mm diameter piston fitted with a ball race for the thrust bearing, you will probably find that SKF bearing 630/8-2RS1 will fit, sizes are:
Outside diameter: 22 mm
Inside diameter: 8 mm
Width: 11 mm

Electrics

Paso 750 and 906 Marelli ignition coils appear similar to first model of Fiat Uno.
Paso Digiplex ignition unit appears similar to that fitted to Lancia Thema 16V, Fiat Croma 1600 & Moto Guzzi Nevada 750.

Starter solenoid and flasher relay for two-valve twins - Rover/British Leyland Mini/1100

BATTERY - electric start twins:
Westco SVR20 sealed gel battery is smaller than stock, 18 AH, 300+ CCA

​Starter system

Paso starter solenoid (standard fitment) = Hitachi 12V MS 5A-181.

906 Paso, engine starter sprag clutch: LC4 Freewheel bearing KTM Part No.58440026000. ( less than half the price of the original Ducati part.)


Headlights
Paso headlamp: Yamaha FZ750 of 1985/6 - Koyoto part number 110-31420
906 Paso, Part Number 037032600 Headlamp Make CEV

Engine parts
Paso 906 = Gates powergrip 5297-070x18mm.

Electrics.
Paso clock can be replaced by fitting the printed circuit board from some Fiat models such as the Mirafiori, Tipo and Jaeger.
Paso ignition switch - Gilera 125 SP01


Key blanks
For the 906 Paso: Ilco FT46 X152 (ignition) and Ilco 9978 (seat).

Paint Codes
Paint (touch-up): early belt-drive SS models - Ford Radiant red or Hycote Nissan red 526. 748 yellow: Colorite 7560U. On the official Ducati website the colour is listed as PPG 473.201 (PPG is the US based manufacturer of the original paint), very close to Fiat 268 (Giallo Bus). From Lechler in Italy: red 906 Paso (1989): Rosso 65205

Water pump seals are weird . They are a carbon face seal , same as most dishwasher pumps ,and they can be like a naughty kid . Mine was fine till I parked it up for a few years, then it leaked everytime I ran the engine for no reason .......and then it didnt....and did . I would drain the coolant (keep it if it in good nick ) and just run plain water for a bit . Sometimes they "clean up" the sealing faces. Antifreeze is slippery and sorta lubes the seal , running water only hopefully scrapes the seal clean .....worth a try .
I wish I was young again............Id be heaps smarter than last time
