My motor spun a bearing, so I ordered a replacement motor, new seals, and impeller (damaged removing it) . Assembled it all, water sprayed from pump housing rear seal. Disassembled and checked everything, and the stationary spring seal has a small chunk missing where it touches the impeller seal. It did not when I bolted it up.
Also, the volute housing seal tube seems to be about 1mm larger than the motor shaft, and I cannot visualize how that seals.
Any suggestions about what I am doing wrong? Or what caused the torn seal?
