Part # GOKIT71
Alternate Part #'s PL1071
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.

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.
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, 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.
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??
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?
Hello Mike, yes this is the same if you have a Polaris Booster pump this seal kit will work.
I have a Magnatek booster pump for my Polaris 280 pool sweep. 3/4 HP PB-4
Part #8-173840-23. What tune-up kit is right for this pump? Shaft seal is leaking.
Hi John, this would be the correct tune up kit for your Polaris Booster Pump.
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.
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 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?
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?
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.
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?
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?
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?
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.
(5 out of 5 stars) Great kit for Polaris booster pump
Reviewed By: Cobra427sc from Houston, Tx ()
Pros: Great kit, fast shipping, good price
Cons: Website should address other motor configuratioins
Great kit, ready to go and complete. There must be several versions of the PacFab booster pump, as neither the Inyo website instructions, nor a decent segment on Youtube, satisfactorily addressed how to hold the shaft steady on my pump. (It turns out that mine is really easy...you can grasp the shaft with a needle nose locking plier through a window in the motor casing, making it really easy to do.) Other than that setback, it was an easy and effective install. sdm

very complete and handy item. packing may not have been adequate, as there were 2 pieces of plastic broken off the plastic ring of the spring loaded washer/gasket,.... still operational, but compromised integrity. I hope to get this particular component replaced. All dealings with INYO have been fantastic, to date.
