    What is this gasket/oring called??

    Found a problem and the gasket/oring wasn't included in the kit that I bought Can't figure out what its called or if its available on amazon can anyone help its going onto a challenger 1hp pump its the gasket attached to the motor on the pic below



    Can't find it on amazon or online but i believe it may be causing my small leak.

    Looks like a foam or paper gasket. but based on the parts diagram that's not a place where water should be. Have an image of the one you have?

    water should stop @ part #2 (seal plate)

    I am not sure why you would need that rubber seal on the shaft.

    Is there a large chunk missing from one of the 3 fins in the last picture?
