New seal kit installation for water pump area

Just came across a 1984 Mercury 3.5hp 2 cycle outboard. I found a new water pump for it and purchased a new seal kit(part number: 26-71140A1) for installation of the water pump. I also purchased a Seloc repair manual. My question is since it is not clear in the Seloc manual how the seal kit for the water pump installation goes, in what order the seals go into the water pump can someone please send me a diagram on how the seals go onto the drive shaft in and around the new water pump? The serial number of my motor is: 6298133. Thank you for your help.

Hi

You could try the reverse of taking apart.

Sometimes the parts list pics - which I think you already have - can help.

Otherwise the best way is as dave says ^^^.
As you take each item off either draw a sketch or take a photo showing it before removal. Lay out the old ones in the same positions as they were in when fitted. I do that a lot. (Be careful not to kick the layout )
When removing numbers of bolts - such as those holding on casings, covers or cylinder heads - I draw a diagram of the part on cardboard & then put the bolts into holes punched with a screwdriver on the correct part of the diagram as I remove them. You can do the same with nuts & washers, just use sticky tape to hold them to the card. Old cardboard boxes are ideal.
Be especially careful with seals as they often need to be fitted a specific way round to work.
