I am leaking fluid around my water pump cover and was told that I need to replace my mechanical seal. I got on eBay to buy this mechanical seal but didn't realize till after I bought it that I bought it for an '83 and I have an '80. Does anyone know if Honda changed the mechanical seal at all between those two years and I will be good or will I need to buy one for an '80.

Yes, Honda changed the size of the hole for the mechanical seal, and it's recommended to use the cheaper recommended Yamaha mechanical seal part number 11H-12438-10-00
