Alternate Part #'s 65038, GO KIT 38
Standard tune up kit for the Starite P4E & P4EA Max-E-Glas II / DuraGlas II pumps 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.

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 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.
(4 out of 5 stars) A Must When Changing Motor

Pros: All the necessary parts
Cons: Could have included instructions
I purchased this kit when ordering a replacement motor. I found it necessary to go on-line to figure out what gasket went where. A sheet of instructions would have been helpful. Also the large gasket provided for the split impeller casing was a round o-ring, while the original gasket was flat. Fortunately it fit in the casing face and sealed it, although there was some difficulty in getting it to stay in place while the pump was being reassembled. Finally, there was one small o-ring left over which I couldn't figure where to install it. This kit should be purchased when replacing the motor - you'll have a like-new pump.
(5 out of 5 stars) perfect add on

This was everything I needed when replacing my pool pump motor. It had everything I needed. The only thing that would help would be some well illustrated instructions.
