Part # GOKIT32
Alternate Part #'s 65032, GO KIT 32, PL1032
Standard tune up kit for the Pentair / Purex Whisperflo 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.

Hi, I have a pentair wf 28 2hp 115/230v ,need to replace motor,
what motor do I need and what gasket kit do i need?
How do I get a performance curve for a Whisperflo WF-26 using this Motor?
Will this fit the 1/2 HP Standard Motor - Full Rate (B846, B2846)?
The seal kit will depend on the model number or name of the front pump housing that the motors bolt to. If you click here then you can view a pump that uses this seal kit. If you are not sure of your model then you can always email images of it to email@example.com so we can assist.
whats the difference between go kit 32 and go kit 30 and which one fits a purex WFE-8
I have a pentair intelliflo pump WF/NT - 4 - 160 P/N 011013. I need a new impeller as the short 2 1/4" moulding that sticks out from the pump sheared off (side where the screw goes in) Will i also need a housing.
The impeller is listed as key 17 on this Intelliflo parts diagram. We do recommend replacing any apparent pump parts that are worn or damaged but if would like us to be sure then please send a few images of the pump and its damaged or worn parts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What's the difference between the GOKIT32 and the GOKIT5? I am purchasing a Pentair Challenger 1.5HP Full Rated (B2842) Motor and want the correct seal kit.
Hi, David. The GOKIT32 is for a Whisperflo Pump and GOKIT5 is for a Challenger Pump (High Pressure). The B2842 is the motor number which can be used on several different pumps. If you can provide us with the model number of the Challenger pump that you have we can confirm if GOKIT5 is the correct kit.
My pool was built in 2002 still have the same pump. Recently I had the motor replaced on the pump Pentair Challenger High Performance pump and it has started to leak. The motor is a Century cat#B2854 pt#0-F56AA40A01-24. What tune up kit do I need to order? Thanks in advance Juan T
I ordered 3/4 hp square flange motor. Is this the kit for the motor shaft and pump impeller?
Hello Waylon- The seals are based off of the pump not the motor. We would need to know what the model of your pump is to find the right seals for you.
I have a Whisperflo WF-24 pump with an AO Smith B2853 motor. Is the GO KIT 32 the correct kit to replace the seals?
Thanks in advance,
I have a whisper flow pump, Can i just change the motor to a variable speed to make it more efficient or do i have to change the whole pump ?
I have a Whisper Flow unit. The place where you add water before turning on the pump. The part 357150 has two ridges broken so I cannot tighten the lid. Every thing works but this tightening device. Can I purchase such part to align and secure the lid.
I think I found the right replacement motor for the Pentair Super Flo High Performance Pump (Motor # 196237) Part # 340037 Model SF N1-3/4A
It's the Century B2847. 56Y. What tune up kit do I use since you don't list Super Flo only Whisper Flo ? Please let me know if I have the right Motor, Also is there an EE model for better efficiency.
I have a Pentair WF-26 , 011773 pump. The intake valve was left closed from a cleaning and the pump ran 8 hours dry. The pump works but seems like it is making a lot more noise. Is it likely that the pump was damaged and if so, any recommendations on parts that would be needed to rebuild the pump? I did not find a new pump without the motor as a part on the web site. Is that available and if so, how much?
Hi Steve, many times when this happens the motor can get extremely hot actually warping the pump housing and damaging the motor. My suggestion would be a complete new Pentair Whisperflo WF-26 011773 Pump. You could keep your old pump for spare parts if you ever needed them.
I have an older Wisperflo Pool Pump and need to replace the motor and all gaskets.
Do you have a GOKIT32-SALT gasket set for salt water pools?
Hi, Click the link >Pentair/Purex Whisperflo Tune Up Kit (GOKIT32SALT)<, it will direct you to the kit for salt water pools.
Why doesn't this kit come with bearings?
Alex, The GOKIT32 is specifically made for the "wet-end" of the pump not the motor. The bearings are specific to the motor not just the pump model. We can try to match the bearing based on the model number or the size of the bearings.
My pump is not priming even after cleaning impeller. Will purchasing this kit aid in fixing that problem?
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 just finished replacing the shaft seal on my booster pump. As soon as I turned the pump on water was leaking from the shaft seal. Is it defective or am I doing something wrong?
Depending on the model, the installation of a booster pump shaft seal can be slightly different than a pool pump shaft seal. Some booster pump and pool pump shaft seals require that a silicone sealant be used on the outer areas of the metal seat of the shaft seal. The seal will need to be lightly hammered into the body of the pump. You can use a 1 inch PVC coupling or a piece of 1 1/4 inch PVC pipe and a rubber mallet. This procedure will apply to any pool pump or booster pump using a >PS-1000 style shaft seal.
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!!
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.

Socket Set, Wrench Set
After turning off all power to my pool equipment at the main, I started by draining all the water out of my pump volute. I next used a socket and ratchet to loosen the six (6) bolts from the seal plate to the volute.
Next, I removed the Seal plate, still attached to the motor, from the Volute. Next, I replaced the rubber gasket for the seal plate as well as the o-ring on the diffuser.
I was now ready to reassemble the pump. I used a little lube to hold the gasket in place as I moved it back into the volute. Once I had a good seat, I started inserting the bolts, being careful just to hand tighten all six. Then I went around and tightened the bolts carefully with a wrench, alternating from top-right to left middle to bottom right and so on to create an even tightening on the gasket.
When I was all done, I switched on the electrical, primed the pump and everything worked great.

Pros: direct replacement - all the parts needed
Cons: No "Don Not Lube" Warning
Didn't know NOT TO LUBE the ceramic disk as there is no warning on the Go-Kit. I luckly had some troubles on installing the impeller and refered to Inyo's great online help, where I learned about the oil contamination issue and got mine cleaned up before going into service. The "D" shaped O-ring was a PITA to install, but eventually got it my filing the grove on the plate so the ring would seat better. I used the lube to help keep the ring in place as I seated the ring into the groove... a 30 minute job alone.
