I have a 2003 Sportsman 700 and I've replaced the water pump seal twice because it keeps cracking on install. I'm trying to do this with the cover on the machine. I bought a 3rd seal and this time took the cover off. What am I doing wrong? Only thing i can think of is that I'm pushing the mechanical seal together to compress the spring to put the impeller back on.

Any thoughts or ideas? These seals are spendy and I can't afford to crack another one. Thanks

It's one of those things that you just have to be very careful doing if you don't have the correct tool to do it. And even then you can still mess them up.
