Product Description

INYOpools highly recommends 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 pump and may leak. The best value is to go with one of INYO's tune up kits which include the shaft seal and all O-rings, gaskets and lubricant for your pump.

This Tune Up Kit Works on These Pumps:

Tune Up Kit Includes:

  • Motor Shaft Seal
  • Shaft O-Ring
  • Bracket O-Ring

I just want to make sure that I order the right tune-up kit for my polaris pump. To do this I sent a photo of the pump motor tag and a photo of the pump and motor. The tag on the pump itself has worn away. I am hoping that you can identify the pump from the photo to be able to tell me the right kit to get. The pool is salt water. Thank you, Sincerely, Alex

Hello - it appears you have the Polaris Booster Pump (Original Style), the correct gasket kit would be the GOKIT71.

I can’t get the impeller off the motor shaft. Any tricks of the trade?

Hello, If you get a wrench, you can hold the end of the shaft while you twist off the impeller.

Yes I Have 7-173840-23 pump motor, and going to use this seal kit to replace the seals on the motor and propeller. How do you remove the motor drive shaft from the propeller in order to replace these seals? The motor still work good. James
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/9/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

James, the impeller is threaded onto the motor shaft. You will need to hold the motor shaft in place to remove the impeller. Please note the GOKIT71 will only fir the older style Polaris PB460 pump. If you have a different pump model, this kit will not work.

Hi I have an AO smith century booster pump that is leaking and I'm pretty sure it's shaft seal from everything I've seen is this the right tune up kit for this model 7-173840-23. Thanks

Hi. This is the correct Tune Up Kit for unit manufactured prior to 2011 or with serial numbers after PB120111001.

I have a PB4-60Q pump. I have found that the shaft seal part for the PB4-60 will not fit the PB4-60Q. Also the O ring is different with a large price difference. How then is it possible that repair kit GOKIT71 is stated to fit both pumps??
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/3/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Bob. GOKIT71 will not work with the Polaris Halcyon Booster Pump - Model PB4-60Q, the seals and o-ring will have to be purchased as individual parts.

Will the Part # GOKIT71 seal kit work on a Polaris PB-4 booster pump? It is listed to work with the PB-460 and 460Q, but the casting on my pump only shows PB-4. Is it the same?
 Reply

A  Answered on 11/21/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Stacey M.

Hello Mike, yes this is the same if you have a Polaris Booster pump this seal kit will work.

I have a 3/4 hp century pool pump BP4-60.My pump started making a humming noise.It is now so loud that i stopped using it.Would a pump kit help this problem or is the motor bad.
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/11/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

This is usually a sign that the motor bearings are going bad. This is typically grounds for replacing the motor. Replacing the seals likely will not resolve the issue.

I have a Century booster pump Model C48L2N134B1 1 1/2 HP. Which kit to buy?
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/4/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

The kit would be based off of the front pump housing model that the motor bolts to.

I have a Century Pool and Spa booster pump Model #7-173840-23, and it also has PB4-60 on side. It is leaking water and I believe a shaft seal kit or tune-up kit will remedy this. Which kit should I get for this type of motor leak?
 Reply

A  Answered on 11/24/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Charlie R.

Don,Yes, this would be the correct tune up kit for your PB4-60 Polaris booster pump. If you have a leak towards the motor, then you should pay close attention to your shaft seal within the kit. That is the seal that should prevent further leaking and water damage to the motor.

Hi, the Polaris Booster Pump I have has a metal tag on the impeller housing that says "PB-4 Booster Pump". The serial number is M717267 and was purchased in 2001. Which rebuild kit can I use?

Dave- The GOKIT71 Tune Up Kit Polaris Booster Pump would be the right tune up kit for your polaris booster pump.

Hi, I am looking for a tune up kit like this for a Polaris booster pump B625. If you dont, would you tell me the part #s for the items. Thanks.
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/6/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Dennis R.

Gen,  B625 is the motor identification for your Polaris Booster Pump. We would need to know the model of your Polaris Booster Pump to correctly identify the GOKIT you need. Working backwards, the GOKIT71 you asked about works on Polaris PB460 & Polaris PB460Q 3/4 HP Booster Pumps. If you have one of these, GOKIT71 is what you are looking for.

Is there something on the Century motor label that would tell me what you need to know to help me? Or do I have to disassemble the current motor to find it?
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/13/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Yes, there shoud be a number on the motor, like "Cat" or a number in this sequence xx-xxxxxx-xx.

I am replacing my Century Pool and Spa motor (Cat B624 and Part 8-173840-23). Is this the right tune up kit to use?
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/13/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

We would actually need the front plastic pump model to locate the correct tune up kit for you.

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

A  Answered on 10/15/2014 by InyoPools 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!!
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/13/2012 by InyoPools 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.
