KTM 950 Adventure Quick Water Pump Change

Bike has a little over 50 000 kms on the odo and have replaced the water pump once before.

But ended up having a flickering oil light, so suspected the water pump, but I did not have really good slurry in the CJ clear clutch cover:

How to get filter out

casting sand

Shaft quite badly worn:


Did a time lapse video of the wrenching:
