    Probably the biggest mistake you could make would be to install the seals backwards, just follow the instructions. Also note how things are put together as you take them apart. And a little pool lube on the o-rings can make things go together a little easier.

    SuperPro makes a Go-Kit that has the seals, seal plat gasket, volute gasket and lid gasket. Highly recommended.

    DO: Trip the breaker before you start.

    The following are links to a two-part Youtube video for replacing the shaft seal in a Super Pump - it is not your exact pump, but it might give you an idea what to expect (like take the cover off the back of the motor to access the flats on the motor shaft so you can get the impeller off). I recently changed my motor and seals and it really wasn't hard, but it did help me to see someone else do it first.

    Hope that helps.
