We'd be glad to assist you. What is the make and model of the pump? Is it leaking between the motor and seal plate or is it leaking between the seal plate and front housing?

When you removed the old shaft seal, was there a metal piece left behind (picture below). That metal piece should have been removed.

Check out our video below on how to replace the shaft seal.

i put the old impellar back on  and i think the new one does't have enough threads to go on the shaft.  so far no leaks
