    Need help with seal kit

    I am rebuilding my pool pump and need guidance on what all I need. I have the motor apart and the bearings removed and new ones in hand. I need help with the seals needed to put it all back together. Attached is my motor and basket label.

    Re: Need help with seal kit

    I am not sure what you are asking because the seals have nothing to do with the bearing installation. Just remove the old bearings with a bearing puller and press on the new bearings.

    Here is the seal kit but the seal goes on after the motor is installed in the motor plate:

    That is what I was looking for. I was only stating replacing the bearings so everyone would know how torn apart it is and what I needed to reassemble. I also found a water slinger seal, is that needed?

    The one that came off was two rubber washers and a steel washer. Guess the single washer is an update? So that kit above has everything else needed?

    Yes but I changed my mind, use this kit instead:

    https://www.amazon.com/Hayward-Compl...GY7T83Z2Z8Y5B7

    It has better seals.

    How can you tell it has better seals? Just so I know what to look for.

    It uses US Seal. Crane are also good seals.
