MF 1250 Water Pump Leak

1998 MF Tractor Model 1250 -Iseki TK532 3 cylinder 91.5 ci 490 hours on the tractor (Serial Number G-G1619).

Today i was using the tractor to move some items around. When I pulled the tractor back into the "garage" I notice a wet spot where the tractor was parked (when I was warming it up). I stopped the tractor and turned it off and there was warm water dripping down from the engine area. Pulled the side covers and notice nothing unusual.

Checked the hoses and they appeared intact. Started the engine again and looked to see if I could see any leakage. I could not really see any leaks but some "steam" under the water pump area.

Engine coolant temperature was low on the peg before I started it the first time and was in the normal range as I operated it and after I re-started it.

I am assuming the water pump seal is leaking and I should replace the water pump.

From what I have read here it appears I should take the radiator out and have it serviced since it would be easier to replace the water pump with it out and of course new hoses.

This is the first major issue I have had with this tractor since I owned it (from new)


1. I contacted the dealer that sold me the tractor in 1998 and he will come pick up the tractor (about 90 mile round trip)
replace the water pump ($350) and hoses. Total price about $1,200. Is this a reasonable price?

2. I could try and repair it myself, it does not appear to be that difficult a job but does require actual work. I have a "manual" (see pic) but it is not as detailed as I would like. Is there a better manual for this tractor?
