So i rebuilt my engine went to go break it in and noticed coolant comeing out of the weep hole. Im assumeing bad mechanical seal?? And im planning on getting a new water pump but I would like to ride today... What would happen if I plugged my weep hole up until my new water pump got in?

It will build up pressure and force coolant by the oil seal. Thus putting coolant in the engine oil. Probably contaminating the clutch pack causing the fibers to debond and slip.

It is just best to let it pour out. Some times when they sit they will drip a little bit but after the first ride the seal softens back up and they wont leak. Mine usually do this when they sit over the winter. But they dont leak once they start getting rode in the spring.
