Is this motor USQ1202 the same as SQ1202? And are there rotation directions specific to these motors? Are they the same or do they opposite rotation?
Hi. This USQ1202 motor is the not the same as the SQ1202 motors but they have the same rotation. The total horsepower of the motor.are different.
I have a Sta-Rite pump Model # P4RA6G-152L. The 2 HP motor (SF 1.1) needs to be replaced. Can you recommend the correct motor and Go-Kit for my application?
I need the replacement bearings for a USQ1202 motor. The pump is a Whisperflo WFE-28 2hp.
I have a Pentair Challenger (CHII N1 2A/346201). The AO Smith USQ1202 looks like it will fit. Can you confirm? Also, Can you recommend the appropriate seal kit?
Hi, Steve in Texas. The USQ1202 motor will fit the CHII N1 2A/346201 pump. You will also need the Challenger Pump (CH Series) Tune Up Kit - GOKIT5.
Is this a direct replacement for a pentair whisper flow # 071316S
Hi, Sean. The Century/A.O. Smith B843 Motor is the direct replacement for Part # 071316S.
I have a TriStar Hayward Pump and the pool motor went bad. I am looking to replace it and the current Century pool pump has the following: FR: Y56Y; Type: CXCP; HP: 1.5/.19; SF: 1.23; Code K; RPM: 3450/1725; Volts: 208-230; HZ: 60; Insul Class: F; PH: 1; Encl: ODP; Amps: SF 8.5/1.5; Amb: 60 Degrees Celcius; Time: CONT; Form: KJM. The original Part #7-K56AA23A04-05; Serial#: 14413J2. It's a 2 speed. Do you know the exact replacement part and the salt water ring kit? Thank you.
Is the usq1202 the same as the sq1202 motor ? Everything is identical except your motor is like 10 amps where the one I have is 11.2 amps, is that a concern ? Thank you...Ken
Ken, They are not the same motor. The USQ1202 is an up rated motor and the SQ1202 is a full rated motor. In short, the SQ1202 is a stronger motor. When trying to find a replacement motor, you must take the S.F (service factor) into consideration.
im looking to replace an Emerson 2.0HP motor Model # K63CXESF-4793 is this motor eqivalent
Hi, Randy. The Century B843 Motor is the equivalent replacement for the Emerson K63CXESF-4793 motor.
I'm looking for a replacement pump for a Sta Rite Maxiglas II pump mod#P4E6G189L and accompanying O ring gasket kit. My diffuser has slits in it. I'm replacing the straining basket too. I was wondering which pump fits my needs. Thanks
My A.O. Smith k48m2n110b3 (?SER: 35507FM) motor has seized, but for the life of me, I can't find the appropriate replacement.
Hi. The replacement motor based on that model # is the Century ST1152 Motor.
Will this motor work as a replacement on my Sta-Rite 2.5HP MPEA 6YG-207L?
Hi, Paul. This Century USQ1202 motor will work with the MPEA6YG-207L pump if you're still using the original Impeller - C105-236PDA which is for a 2HP pump.
I have a Sta - Rite pump, Model MSF 6MS1, 2 HP, 230 volts. Do you have a replacement motor for this pump?
Hi, Jerry. Unfortunately, we do not sell replacement motor for the Sta-Rite MSF pumps.
Is the SQ1202 the right pump for a Sta-Rite MAX-E-PRO (P6RA6G-207L)?
The USQ1202 is the proper replacement motor for the P6RA6G-207L Max E Pro Pump and not the SQ1202. The P6RA6G-207L is a 2 HP up rate pump which means the USQ1202 is the correct replacement motor.
Hi, I am looking at replacing my current pool pump. This pump appears to be very similar except with the following: My pump Motor Mod ends with a C4 not a C5 My pump Max Load Amps is 11.2 and the SF is 1.3. Mine was manufactured by A.O.Smith Corp. Everything else is exactly the same. Will this USQ1202 be the proper replacement for my SQ1202? Thank you, Tim
Hi, Tim. The USQ1202 motor will not replace the SQ1102 motor. Based on the info provided you'll need the SQ1202 Motor.
Will this motor fit a Whisper Flow WF28?
You could use this motor but the best fit replacement motor to the original WF28 is the B855.
I currently have a STA-RITE motor model C48M2PA100, H.P. 2.0, VOLTS 230, and pump Model No. P6RA6G-207L. I need to replace and would like to know which ones I can replace with. This also runs a waterfall. I would like an energy efficient model. If I change to some other type, will the wiring be the same as this one. I plan on changing it myself. Also please recommend what other parts I will need. Thank You.
Replacing a 1 1/2 HP Dayton 4RJ94 230 volt pool pump motor. A O Smith's name is on the name plate. This motor looks similar to my present pump. Will this motor replace the one I am using now? Thanks, Hugh
Hi, Hugh. If you can provide the motor's MOD or PART number we can confirm if this is the correct replacement motor.
which impeller do I use with dura-glas with this motor
My pool pump is "Franklin Electric" model 1103125403 which looks almost same as your USQ1202. Are they compatible for replacement? I can accept 230V only. All spec almost the same except frame size, mine is 56 instead of 48Y. Please reply as soon as possible. By the way, can you supply flange seal also?
Hi, Jack. In order to confirm that the USQ11202 is the correct replacement, I will need a picture of the motor label or the pump model number. The 56Y and 48Y frame motors are interchangeable. The pump seal is specific to the pump housing, not the motor.
can i use this motor in replace of my Pentair wfds-28.
I have a AO Smith, Century Centurion, 170 hp, which is about 15 years old. It will not draw the water out of the pool...anymore. This is a waterfall pond and the pump is about 6 feet above the water level, and just won't create enough suck....to get the flow going. Do all AO Smith pumps of this style have the same connections, and can I get a bigger pump?
Hi, Bob. Unfortunately, not all motors are the same. I will need to know your pump's model and the motor Part, Cat or Mod number. If the motor shaft is rotating then the issue may not be the motor but another issue.
Is the SQ1202 the right pump for a Sta-Rite MAX-E-PRO (P6E6G-208L)?
Yes for the Max-E-Pro P6E6G-208L you will require the SQ1202 2 HP Full Rate Replacement Motor, when replacing your motor we always suggest a Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro Tune Up Kit. You may want to check out our Video on How to Replace a Pool Motor which you may find helpful during your motor swap out.
will this motor replace my whisperflo, pentair
Yes, that will attach to your Pentair Whisperflo. If you have a part or model number I can confirm that is the direct replacement motor that you need.
I need a motor to hook up with Jandy Stealth pump SHPF2.0. I currently have A.O.Smith Century Centurion part 7-1939995-07. Will this piece replace that? What pump seal kit do I also need? Thanks!
The correct replacement motor is part number B843, as for the seal kit, for that particular pump I will need the serial number to find the correct shaft seal.
WHAT is the length of warranty on your pool pump motors I noticed on your website you don't show that? Please reply thank you you can reply to my email extreme clean OC at gmail.com
Hello, our motors have a one year warranty unless otherwise specified on the description/details.
I just placed an order for Centurion motor # 7-168454-24. The representative suggested/ordered and the confirmation page says Item # USQ1202. Are they a direct replacement and will it work or do I need any other gasket with it?
Hi, AP. The USQ1202 motor can be used to replace p/n 7-168454-24. The frame size will be a little smaller but it will mount to your existing pump. We do recommend replacing the gaskets but we will need to know the pump model.
Which seal kit is used for a K48m2pa105c5 replacement motor
Hello- Unfortunately, the seal kit is not determined by the motor, we would need to know the model of your pump to identify your shaft seal.
Hi I just bought a :A.O. Smith 2 H.P. Square Flange Up Rate Motor - USQ1202, I want to make sure that will replace a Pent air Challenger Motor number 196246 Thanks
Hello Jose- Can you verify the model of the pump? Based off the number you provided 196246 it pulls up an A.O. Smith 1.5 HP, 56Y Frame, Up-Rate Motor (b2854, 717721624).
I have a Jandy PHPM2.0 Pump (post2006). It had a 2.0hp ao smith single speed pump, which I replaced with a two speed pump (digital controller onboard) from your store. I have gone through 3 of the 2speed pumps under failure under warranty due to moisture collection inside the digital controller. I want to replace with a 2hp single speed pump. What model# is compatible? I will also order a new seal R0479400. Please advise. Many thanks.
Yes, the correct single speed replacement motor is part number USQ1202.
Presently have a AO Smith 1152 1.5 HP square faced 48Y pool pump motor on Pentair Pump will your 2 HP motor work the same??? or do I have to use same motor?? Thx Alec
Hello Alec- We would recommend using the same horsepower replacement motor. When considering increasing the horsepower, you would want to view the pool pump parts list specific to your pump. What you would need to know is if you would need to upgrade the impeller and//or diffuser sizes to accommodate the higher horsepower motor.
My pump's motor has seized (circuit breaker keeps tripping and motor was whining for several months). It's a STA-RITE "Dyna Glass" model C48M2PA100, it seems the part you sell USQ1202 is a compatible replacement, can you confirm? Haven't yet taken the old motor off but notice your picture the end of the shaft seems round/threaded - not sure how that is meant to connect to the pump mechanism (I was expecting to see some form of keyed shaft).
My pump is a Max E Pro with a 2 HP K48M2PA105C3 motor. Which motor would I use as a replacement?
Hi, Terry S. The USQ1202 is the correct replacement for MOD # K48M2PA105C3. I would also recommend that you get the Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro Tune Up Kit - GOKIT79 which includes the pump shaft seal and all of the o-rings for the Max-E-Pro pump.
The motor from my pool pump broke, it was a Franklin Electric model 1105170400 230 V 60 hz hp 2-1/4 RPM 3450 - 1725 what would be a suitable (affordable) replacement. It is 6" in diameter and has a round surface at the front where the four bolts are
The correct replacement motor is part number 5389X and if you have the pump model I can help you with the correct shaft seal that you will need for the motor installation as well. If you are not aware of that you can attach a picture of the complete pump and I can identify it for you.
I need bearings for a A O Smith motor #C48M2PA100. Thanks
Good afternoon Ron, You are looking for 203 bearing size. Bearing, 203 (62032rs) (Single)
My current motor has burned out and I have changed the capacitor in hopes that it would fix the issue, however it looks like I need a new motor now. I currently have the ST1202. Is there anything else that you suggest I purchase other than the motor? Gaskets, O-rings etc? Do you suggest replacing the impeller also? This is the first pool I have owned, of which came with our new house. It does not appear that the motor has ever been changed since 2003!
Hello Ryan, I would recommend you replace the seals whenever you change out the motor. You will need to identify the make and model of the pump in order to correctly match the parts you need.
I have a pac-fab 2hp model 35-5460 which model motor to use 48 or 56 ????
Hi, Chris. You can use either motor but the 56Y Frame motors are the OEM.
I have a Pentair WFE-28 pump w/ motor # 177451. It shows it is a USQ1202 motor. What bearing kit do I need for this motor? thanks, scottg
The bearing for that motor is part number 5270-31.
I need a new capacitor on my A.O. Smith pool pump motor The identification label on the old capacitor states: CSC P10000 AFC PROTECTED 20UF +/- 6% 370VAC/B 50/60 Hz 40/070/21 P2 SH 0622 A 70 C 325P206H37M25N4X 628318-306 Thanks Lou
Hello Lou, your capacitor is Capacitor, Run Rd 20-370 (rd-20-370) part number 5270-07.
I have a pentair whisperFlow WFE-28. 2HP 230volt and needing to know what run capacitor I need. Pump hums but won't turn. I can reach down and turn shaft and it will remain running.
Hello Chris, for USQ1202 the run capacitor is part number 17586320 and start capacitor is part number 610807-011.
I have the Max E Pro 2hp motor model #K48M2PA105 pump model #P6EA6G-207L. It is going on 11 yrs old and it "sings" sometimes, sometimes not and it leaks slightly sometimes, sometimes not. The paint on the housing shows it runs hot, but it is still working. Should I go ahead and replace before the inevitable and if so, is this the correct motor? Thanks!
The USQ1202 would be the correct replacement for your Max-E-Pro. I would recommend the seal kit as well especially if you notice leaking occurring. That is part number GOKIT79.
I need a replacement motor and seal for Sta-Rite 2 HP pump model No. MPRA6G-155L, Motor No. C48M2PA100. 230V. Can you give me price and delivery
Hi Larry. The USQ1202 motor is the correct replacement motor for the MPRA6G-155L pump. To view pricing click link UST1202, delivery can take about 3 business days. I will also recommend that you get the Sta-Rite DynGlas & DynaMax Tune Up Kit (GOKIT47).
I need a replacement 2 HP motor for Sta-Rite pump model No. MPRA6G-155L with Motor No. C48M2PA100. Motor only. Also need a pump shaft seal. Can you give me price and availability?
Hello Larry, The motor you are looking for is A.O. Smith 2 H.P. Square Flange Up Rate Motor - USQ1202 and seal kit Tune Up Kit Sta Rite Dyn Glas & Dyna Max - GOKIT47 or Tune Up Kit Sta-Rite Flo Tech/AquaTools/Dyna-Glas - GOKIT44 depending on which model you have.
Hello, I have a USQ1202 2HP. When you replace the pump, is there other items that should be replaced? ie, gasket etc... My current pump is 7 years old, getting a bit louder and is very hot so time to replace.
When you replace this motor, we highly recommend that you replace the shaft/pump seal. You will need to identify the make and model of the pump to identify the correct seal that matches your pump. The motor information will not identify the pump and corresponding parts.
HI, IS THIS MODEL NEW WITH A WARRANTY OR IS IT REFURBISHED?
This motor is new and has a one year warranty.
Hi I have a STA-RITE MAX-E-PRO pump, model P6E6G-208L. From what I can tell this pump requires a 2 HP motor. In my case there is a 1.5 HP motor installed, Century Centurion 165200-06. I need to replace the motor due to the bearings. Should I order a 2 HP motor or another 1.5 HP motor for this pump model? Thanks!
John,You will want to replace your motor with the same one that is currently on your pump. In your case, the part # 165200-06 cross references to a 1,5 full rated motor (B842), but the total horse power on the motor is 2.21. (To calculate your total horse power, you will multiply your horse power rating by your Service factor (SF). Hope this helps.
Just bought our house need to buy motor/rebuild kit. Current motor is usq1152 & pump is AR207-L. Question - What seal kit/motor to buy? The 1152 is 1 1/2hp but the pump housing AR207 means 2hp motor, I think. We have the original build sheet and that says they had a 1hp motor installed when new. 1152 is alittle over 10yrs old. Pool has Polaris 5 port caretaker system and is around 25K gallons. Have no problem putting another 1152 on but wondering if I should upgrade to 2hp motor.
It'll depend on what you have for features, such as a waterfall or suction cleaner and what your filter size is if it'll be able to handle a 2HP motor. The replacement for a 1-1/2HP would be part number SQ1152 and the shaft seal is part number 5056-08. If you want to send me the above information along with the distance in feet from where your pump is to your main drain I can advise you in if you could go with a 2HP motor instead of a 1-1/2HP.
Purchased a rebuilt 2hp A.O. Smith motor. The tech put all the components on the motor, All I did was put it in the housing. Now there is a loud hum coming from the motor. The old one wasn't that loud. Don't know if he missed putting in a part. Thanks for your help.
Hi Pete normally a loud hum means a bad capacitor, I would have him double check the capacitor to make sure it is good.
I need to replace a sta-rite K48M2PA105 pump. Our electric company prefers a variable speed pump replacement. What would it be? Is it a direct replacement or do modifications need to be made?
Hi Lee, The ECM27SQU Motor will be the variable speed replacement for the K48M2PA105 motor.
This shows as a proper replacement motor for my current Marathon Electric motor, but the specs on the Marathon show 56Z as the frame size. What is the difference than 56Z and 48Y as this replacement motor shows? Thanks.
The diameter of the motor is wider on the 56 frame then the 48. This would mean that the 48 may not rest on the base/stand if there is currently one. You would need to locate a 56 frame version or adjust accordingly with a base/stand.
What would be the deal kit for this pump P6RA6G-207L?
Hi Shane, The Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro Tune Up Kit (GOKIT79) is the correct Tune Up Kit.
Hi I purchased A.O. Smith 2 H.P. Square Flange Up Rate Motor from you and all is good but forgot the shaft seal. So what is the part number for the shaft seal kit for the above pump please..
Hi Shane, We would need the manufacture and model number of the pump housing in order to locate the correct shaft seal. We can not determine by the motor.
ao smith/max glass ii 230v 2 hp run cap microferrids? under end cover not start cap
Hi Scott, This motor uses the 20 MFD 370 V Run Capacitor (RD-20-370).
after installing the pump I connected the wires turned the power back on but nothing happened. I was wondering if there is a guard that I should have removed to allow the pump motor to run
Hi, As long as the motor is wired to the correct voltage it will run, there is not a guard that you will have to remove. Please review our How To: Replace the Motor on Your Pool Pump and How To: Wire a Pool Pump for installation instructions.
Hi, I currently have a dura-glas 2 model C48M2PA100. Would this be an appropriate replacement?
Hi Josh, The A.O. Smith 2 H.P. Square Flange Up Rate Motor (USQ1202) is the correct replacement motor for model # C48M2PA100.
I have this motor but the start capacitor is in the base and not under an external hump. I replaced the capacitor about 6 months ago and it is starting to go bad again. The 220-250 volt cap @161-193 uF won't fit in the base. I installed the 115-125v before with the same uF rating. Is the 115-125v sufficient enough for this motor or is this why the cap went prematurely? Thank you
Hi Guy, A 115-125 Volt capacitor would not be sufficient enough to replace a 220-250 Volt Capacitor.
I have to replace a Marathon 5KCR39UUN6190X and believe I need a USQ1202, is that correct?
In theory yes you can use this motor as a replacement but it is only 230 volt and is a 48 frame. A better match would be the B859/B2859.
I need a replacement motor for sta rite P6RA6G-207L. thanks
Hello Randy - The USQ1202 is the correct replacement motor for the Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro model P6RA6G-207L.
I have to replace my Sta-Rite Max-E motor # P6RA6G-207L. Would this be the correct replacement? I did ask this twice, my email address was incorrect. Thanks.
Hi Ann, The A.O. Smith 2 H.P. Square Flange Up Rate Motor (USQ1202) would be the correct for the Sta-Rite P6RA6G-207L pump.
Will this motor match my Sta-Rite MAX-E-PRO 2 HP spa pump? Pump model P6E6G-208L. #'s from my motor are K48N2PA105.
Hi Steve, The A.O. Smith 2 H.P Square Flange Full Rate Motor (SQ1202) would be the correct replacement motor for the Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro P6E6G-208L. I would also recommend getting the Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro Tune Up Kit (GOKIT79).
Hi I have a two pump spa- one of the pumps seized- it is an A O Smith model k48m2p105... 230 volts 2 speed and 2 1/3 HP 48Y frame. What is closest model to purchase to replace this model? Thanks much- I thought I found a replacement before but it was only 1 speed. Need to buy as soon as practical thanks! Barry
Hi Barry, The A.O. Smith 2 HP Square Flange 2-Speed Up Rate Motor would be the correct replacement motor.
Question on a 56Y Square Flange 2 HP B855 Up-Rated A O Smith, 10A 230V When replacing the motor I have a Black and a Red wire coming from the breaker at 230 volts and of course the green ground. The motor has the following terminals "B", "L1", "L2" which is already internally white wired, and "A" My question is does the black wire go to L1 and the red wire go to the terminal marked "A". I know where the green ground goes. Thanks, Doc
Hi Doc, When wiring the motor for 230 volts, the "black" wire would go "L1" and the "red" on "L2" or vice versa. Confirm that the motor is set for 230 volts. You can also watch our How To Wire A Pool Pump Video.
I have a 2HP Pac Fab Challenger Pump with an AO Smith USQ1202. Can I go to a USQ1252 to give it more flow?
Jim- You most certainly can go up to the A.O. Smith 2 1/2 H.P Square Flange Up Rate Motor (USQ1252, C1284, B884) but you will have to change the impeller and diffuser on your current pump and you will also need to make sure your filter can handle the extra flow based on the GPM.
I need to replace an electric motor for a Hayward Pool Pump. OEM is AO Smith Model K48M2N111 Ser13609FM. Please advise a pump replacement. Thanks
Hi Peter, The replacement motor for your K48M2N111 would be the A.O. Smith 2 H.P Round Flange Up Rate Replacement Motor (UST1202).
Is the USQ1202 a replacement for the AE100GHL pump?
Yes the USQ1202 is the correct replacement for the Sta-Rite AE100GHL motor.
My motor C48M2PA100 matches in every way except mine has no "capacitor hump" as shown in the photo. Is yours a match? I'd love to have a bad capacitor but I can't turn the impeller by hand so I think my bearings are bad.
Hello, It sounds like your motor is seized. It may/may not be the capacitor. based on your motor model number, the USQ1202 motor would be the correct replacement.
When turning the motor shaft by hand does the governor hit the rubber bumper on the switch?
Hi, That process is only initiated when the motor has power not by manual turning the shaft.
Will this motor replace a "Centurion for Pac-Fab" 2 hp square faced motor on a Challenger/Pac-Fab No 35-5460 pump?
Only numbers I got from my old pump that just died are A100GLL - can USQ1202 replace it?
Yes the USQ1202 would be the proper repalcement motor for your A100GLL motor.
can this replace aosmith 2hp 2 speed sp1615z2msc only want single speed
Charles, USQ1202 will not replace your SP1615Z2MSC motor. The correct replacement is B2977.
Approx how long for delivery to NJ? Will I need to replace the pool pump shaft seal with this motor? If so, which one do I get & do you sell that too?
Mike- Delivery for the USQ1202 to NJ will be about 3 business days. To get the correct shaft seal you will need to provide us with the model of the pump itself.
Do you offer/supply/recommend an outdoor timer that can be used to only run pump motors for certain times of day or certain periods of time? I understand you should only run the pump an hour for every 10 degrees above zero during peak periods or full time in freezing weather. Can you shed any light on this? Thanks for the opportunity to ask questions. Charles
Hi Charles, PE153PF will run your pool pump for how many hours a day you set it to and during the winter will turn on your pump when the temperature drop to freezing.
I have an AO SMITH Max-E-Glas II motorP4EA6G-152L (230A, 2HP, Single phase, CCWPE rotationl, 3450 RPM) How does the impeller come off - pressed, threaded (LH or RH), etc.? I read the how to of holding the rear of the shaft to keep it from turning which makes me think it is threaded on, but I wanted to ask. Also, do you have a distributor I can pick this motor up from in Dallas, Texas? Thanks, Charles
Charles- The Max-E-Glas II has an impeller screw that has to be taken out, then you would have to unscrew the impeller, which you would have to rotate Counter Clockwise. We do not have any distributors, we are an online only retailer.
Is this motor self priming?
Hello, The motor itself is not self-priming. This is an in-ground pool pump motor. The "self-priming" term refers to the pump as a whole as in ground pumps are designed to sit above the water level.
I'm trying to replace the motor on my pool pump but all these numbers and abbreviations on the motor label are really confusing me. What do they mean?
Replacing a pool pump motor is not as difficult as it seems. You can try looking here. If you need help figuring out what the information on your label means. If you are still having difficulty figuring it out you can call us at our toll free number or you can send us a photo of your motor label here.
Why should I purchase a Tune Up Kit?
A Tune Up Kit includes all of the essential replacement seals and gaskets for the pump. The seals and gaskets should be replaced when installing a new motor on your pump. New seals will prevent the pump from leaking water or losing the prime. A Tune Up Kit will protect your motor and ensure that the pump is working efficiently.
Why do I need to purchase a new shaft seal?
We strongly recommend replacing the shaft seal. The purpose of a shaft seal is to prevent water from running down the shaft of the motor and into the motor housing. Water will damage the bearings and cause the motor to fail. A new shaft seal should be installed whenever a motor is replaced. The motor manufacturer can deny the warranty if the motor fails to due to water damage from a faulty shaft seal. To find your shaft seal you will need to visit our Pool Pump Parts Page or the Spa Pump Parts Page and select your make and model.
What is Service Factor?
Service Factor(SF) is a multiplier that when multiplied by the horsepower of the motor indicates the total permissible horsepower loading that may be carried when the motor is operating at rated voltage and frequency. The most important thing to remember when replacing a motor is that the replacement motor's horsepower times its service factor must be equal to or greater than the original motor's horsepower times its service factor. The Service Factor rating can be found on the motor label. See Step 4 of our How to Read a Pool Motor Label guide.

(5 out of 5 stars) Excellent Pump Moter Replacement
Reviewed By: PoJo from Clarence, NY ()
Pros: Awesome fit - excellent replacement
Tip to get the impeller off the old pump moter: use a 7/16" open ended wrench - it slides in near the capacitor on the electrical side... rotate the impeller until the wrench slides into place at the end of the shaft and then one person holds the motor and the wrench while a 2nd person loosens the impeller off with bare hands by turning the impeller counter clock-wise.

Pros: exact fit, free and fast shipping
Cons: no instructions
With just a little information from my old pump label, I was able to quickly find the right pump motor. Even taking my time, was a very easy and quick job to get my pool up and running again. The shipping was free and almost over night.
(4 out of 5 stars) Good motor for the price.

Pros: Good price.
Cons: Bearings give out too quick, in my opinion.
I replaced the exact same model that I purchased a couple of years ago. The bearings gave out and starting making a lot of noise. I didn't feel like upgrading so I just bought the same motor again. I am going to try and replace the bearings myself on the old one.

I needed a replacement motor for my pump. I spoke with an INYO rep via the online chat. He was able to help me with a compatible motor for my hayward pump and saved me over 200 dollars.
