Product Description

Standard tune up kit for the Sta-Rite 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.

This Tune Up Kit Works on These Pumps:

  • All Sta-Rite Dura-Glas II & Max-E-Glas II 1/2 HP - 3 HP single and dual speed models.
  • All Sta-Rite P4R & P4E Series Pumps 1/2 HP - 3 HP single and dual speed models.
  • Note: Sta-Rite Dura-Glas and Max-E-Glas pumps use GOKIT6

Tune Up Kit Includes:

  • Motor Shaft Seal -(PS201)
  • Seal Plate Housing O-Ring
  • Diffuser O-Ring
  • Lid O-Ring
  • Lubricant

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!!

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.

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

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.

my stayright pool pump mpra6c-207L motor needs replaced. What motor do you recommend ? Do I need the tune up kit also?

A  Answered on 11/6/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Jim. The MPRA6G-207L model pump will use the USQ1202 motor. There is not a tune up kit available for that pump so you will have to purchase the seal and o-ring separately which are all listed on the Sta-Rite Dyna Pro/ Dyna Pro E Pump Parts Diagram page.

Can I get this kit (GOKIT38) with this Shaft Seal PS-201V, 3/4" Shaft Size (PS-201V-CMS)? I am replacing the motor with A.O. Smith 1 H.P Square Flange Up Rate Motor - USQ1102 and have a saltwater pool and would like the extra protection. Thanks

A  Answered on 2/19/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

We, unfortunately, do not carry the saltwater kit version of that seal kit so the saltwater main seal would have to be purchased separately.

Is this the correct kit for the Max-E-Pro 2HP pump?

No, the actual correct gokit for your model pump is the GOKIT79

Dura-Glas II pump leaking badly from the bottom.

Written on 8/9/2023 by Guest

These are steps I followed to replace the seals in my DIY project, they might be similar for your pump; make sure you get the specific parts for your pump model and follow your own user manual.

1. Turn off electricity from the breaker box, open the basket lid and purge the pump removing the drain plug to release the pressure in the system.
2. Unscrew the handle on the clamp and remove it.
3. Separate the motor from the tank body.
4. Remove the diffuser screws from the seal plate to access the impeller, pay attention to the diffuser position because you’ll have to match it when reinstalling it.
5. Remove the cap in the back of the pump and secure the shaft from turning with a wrench.
6. By hand unscrew the impeller counterclockwise, it’s reverse threaded. I used pliers because it was tight.
7. Remove the seal plate from the motor unscrewing the four bolts in the back.
8. Remove the two parts of the shaft seal, my pump had a heat seal which I read you don't have to remove unless it is damaged.
9. One part of the shaft seal came off with the impeller, I took it off with pliers.
10. To take off the other part, I turned the seal plate face down and tapped out the shaft seal with a screwdriver.
11. Apply the lubricant included in the kit and place the new shaft seal carefully in the seal plate, do not touch the ceramic part of the new seal with your hands or lubricant.
12. Reinstall the seal plate to the motor, add the second part of the shaft seal with the metallic part facing the impeller. Again, do not touch the ceramic part with your hands.
13. Replace all the O-rings and add Magic lube all around them.
14. Put everything back in its place, hold the shaft from the back again and tight the impeller by hand (clockwise).
15. Reinstall the diffuser, remember there’s a screw port larger than the rest.
16. Reassemble the motor to the housing and reinstall the clamp.
17. Attach the handle to the clamp and tighten until it starts squeaking.
18. Prime the pump, turn the power on and you are all set!
