ALTERNATE PART #'S65005, GO KIT 5


Product Description

Standard tune up kit for the Pentair Challenger pump includes the shaft seal and all o-rings, gaskets and lubricant.

We highly recommend replacing the shaft seal, o-rings and gaskets when replacing your motor.  If you use your old shaft seal, it will not mate up properly with the new motor and may leak.

This Tune Up Kit Works on These Pumps:

  • All Pentair & Pac-Fab Challenger Pumps 1/2 HP - 3 HP single and dual speed models.

Tune Up Kit Includes:

  • Motor Shaft Seal
  • Pump Lid O-Ring
  • Housing Gasket
  • Diffuser Gasket
  • Lubricant

For more Pool Pump Motors

Asked on 10/15/2014 by Guest

My pump is not priming even after cleaning impeller. Will purchasing this kit aid in fixing that problem?

Answered on 10/15/2014 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

The seal kit can help with loss of prime. I can't guarantee that it will solve your problem. The loss of prime could be from an air leak at the valves or plumbing in front of the pump.

I recently changed my pool motor and gaskets. I made sure to lubricate all the gaskets with vaseline. A few days later water is leaking from the pump. What did I do wrong? Help please!!

Answered on 02/13/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

You never want to use vaseline on any rubber gaskets or o-rings. Vaseline is petroleum based and will deteriorate the rubber quickly. Whenever you change the motor on a pool pump it is recommended that you replace the gaskets and shaft seal as well. A >Go-kit contains the shaft seal, packet of non-petroleum based lubricant and gaskets you will need for your pump. If you already have the gaskets, you can purchase >Magic Lube.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Get this kit when you just need one part

Reviewed By: from Houston, TX ()

Pros: all together

Cons: had to search for the correct kit

This kit had all that I needed to work the pump/motor. Was just going to get a mechanical seal, but for the entire package, I was able to replace all gaskets also.

Reviewed By: from Lake Jackson, TX ()

Pros: Complete, easy to order

Cons: None

I was able to chat online with a Inyo customer service rep and he told me what was in the kit and how to get the other parts I needed. I was able to overhaul the pump with one parts purchase and saved a lot of time. The parts were well made and fit perfectly.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Everything you could possibly need.

Reviewed By: from Tomball, TX ()

Pros: Everything you need

Cons: And some you don't

Well, when the motor went out and I looked into replacing it myself, I find that I really should rebuild the pump. Rebuilding the pump really just involves replacing some seals and gaskets. Now who, wants to strip down their pump and then order this part and that part - Not me. So I ordered this with my new motor and it had everything I could possibly need. At a good price too.

   (4 out of 5 Stars) Nice Tune-up Kit

Reviewed By: from Fairfax, VA ()

Pros: Multiple sized strainer pot o-rings ensured the proper fit.

Cons: Having to make a separate order for the correct diffuser ring.

I ordered this kit mainly to replace the diffuser o-ring which was badly worn. It turned out that the diffuser needed the square ring gasket instead and it wasn't included, just a normal o-ring which wasn't the correct one for my Challenger pump. I will have to make a seperate order for that. However I used the other parts just fine and am happy with their performance.
