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.

Is the shaft seal in this tune up kit suitable for a salt water pool? Or should I purchase the "heavy duty shaft seal that's listed separately?
I have a STA-RITE Model # P6RA6E-205L. Purchased in 2017. It has just sprung a leak where the clamp goes around the pump. Short video included. I assume I should change gaskets. Is that correct and if so, which kit do I need? Thank you
Hello Randy. Changing the Seal Plate Gasket is a good first step. Seal Plate Gasket (February 2015-Current) - 357099Z A careful inspection of the wet end (Tank Body Assembly) around the connection's circumference should be conducted to ensure there are no cracks in the assembly that may continue to leak even after replacing the seal plate gasket, requiring tank body replacement.

If Sta-Rite model # P6RA6E is making a loud noise. Have been told that i need a bearing kit for pump to repair it. It is a 1 HP pump. what will the part number be to purchase a new bearing kit for the pump ?
Hello Wendell. If the pool pump is making a loud noise while running the cause is probably the motor bearings. The correct replacement bearing is dependant on the motor manufacturer/model number and not the pump's model number. While the information you provided indicates that your pump is a Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro model P6RA6E, it does not precisely identify the manufacturer/model of the motor itself. I have attached a brief tutorial that reviews how to replace various parts of an electric pool pump motor. If this project is not something you wish to address, a motor repair shop can accomplish this task or, as another solution, replace the motor itself.

I have a Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro pool pump that needs a replacement pump motor - model No: P6E6G-208L, Motor #K48N2PA105. It is a 2 HP motor, S.F. HP 2.6, 230 volt. Please tell me the correct replacement motor and seal kit I need for my pump? Thank you.
I have a sta rite model s48ab86a03 1.0 HP pool pump that has started to weep. is their a seal ket or a rebuild kit for this pump
That looks like a part number from the motor label. We were not able to cross-reference that number. Could you reply back with a picture of your complete pump?
Pool pump model P2RA5E. Need a go kit or the ceramic seal for seal plate. I got a go kit but the shaft seal is too big.
The P2RA5E is a Sta-Rite Dura-Glas pump. If there is a copper or stainless steel cone in your seal plate, you have the pre 1998 model and need GOKIT6. If there is not a cone in the seal plate, you have a 1998-current model and need GOKIT54.

Is this the right kit for a Sta-Rite pump model # P6RA6G-207L? My pump just started leaking at the band clamp and all bolts and clamp is tight. I also think my pump is newer than 2015. Thanks!
I have a Sta Rite model # P6EA6F-206 ( I cant make the last digit, looks like an L ). My motor is Century centurion (cat B2858, serial # 19115J2, Part # 7-196262-24), 1.5 HP, type CX.
my pump is leaking where the motor and pump meets where the metal band is. Can I use GOKIT79? Please help..
Is there a Go Kit with the heavy duty salt seal shaft? I have a Sta Rite Max E Pro 2HP motor.
Is this the right seal kit ?
My pump model is P6RA6F-206L
I think its older than 2015 - not 100% sure
Hello RJ, yes this is the correct seal kit for the Sta-Rite Max E Pro PRA series pool pump manufactured pre Feb 2015. To confirm the manufacture date you can locate the serial number and provide that to us or directly to Pentair at 1-800-831-7133.
will the motor seal fit a century 1 hp pool pump motor?
Hi. We will need to know the make and model of your pump housing in order to identify which kit you need. If you do not have that info, pictures will do.
How do you tell if your Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro is pre februrary 2015 or not? I bought the house in 2017 and it was already installed. I don't see a year on it.
My motor started making a terrible noise. Water had been dripping from the band clamp area for about a week prior to it making the noise. I suspect I need a new motor and the tune up kit to replace the orings/gaskets.
Hi, J. The pump has a service tag with the model, serial and the manufacturing date on it. If that tag is no longer on the pump, then you will need to check the Housing Gasket. The older models use a round o-ring and newer models use a square ring.
I have a Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro model number P6E6C-204L 1/2 horsepower 0.95 S.F. HP. Is this the right kit?
Hi, Grahame. This is the correct kit if your pump was manufactured prior to February 2015.
My pump is about 2-1/2 years old, and runs continuously but only in summers. It's starting to get louder and louder. Does this kit have the parts I need?
Hi, Keith. This kit consist of the pump seals, it sounds like the motor bearings are failing. You will need to replace those bearings or the motor.
LOOKING FOR A NEW MOTOR AND SEAL/TUNE UP KIT. MOTOR IS K48K2PA105?1 CANT READ THE NEXT TO LAST # OR LETTER. PUMP IS P6E6D205L. I THINK I NEED GOKIT79 AND QC1072, IS THAT RIGHT? THANKS
Hi. I'm replacing the motor on my in ground pool's pump. The pump is a STA-RITE P6E6F-207L, I think, but I can't tell for sure of the last character is an "L". What do I need besides the motor?
Which is the right seal kit / tune up kit for motor # USQ1252?
So in order to locate the correct seal kit we would need to know the model name or number of the front pump housing that the motor is bolted to. If you cannot locate that you can always send us pictures of that housing to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can identify that for you.
Is this the correct kit for the SQ1102 motor ??
This is the correct seal kit for the Max-E-Pro pump, but the motor information does not identify which seal kit you would need. You will need to identify the pump you have in order to verify the correct seal kit.
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 watched the helpful Inyo videos first and had a pretty easy swap of the new motor.
First I made sure to disconnect power at the circuit breaker, I began by closing the valve to my existing pump to limit the amount of water that would flow out. I also switched my filter to drain which seemed to relieve some of the pressure and water in the lines. I removed the original pumps electrical connections, retaining the elbow that connected it to the old motor. Once that was free I loosened the ring that mounts the motor to the pump. I pulled the old motor free and moved everything to a clean table to work on swapping the internals. I followed the steps in the guide and was able to get all the way to the point of removing the impeller from the shaft and could not get it to break free. One important point to note is that the blades of my impeller were incredibly sharp. I tried to loosen it by hand first which resulted in slices across every one of my fingers. Pause for first aid. Resumed with a flexible pipe wrench and make sure to loosen counter clockwise. Everything from that point on was super easy. One big thing to note with this motor is that it is 220v ONLY! there is no way to adjust for 110 as with my old pump. This was a bit of a setback as I had to call an electrician to run a 220 line. At the end of the day though, its amazing! Purrs like a kitten and has been doing a great job keeping my pool sparkling clean. I'm debating getting the wifi add on, but likely will for convenience.

1. Shut off power to the pump at the circuit breaker panel
2. Ensure the power is off using an AC circuit tester
3. Loosen the PVC unions that connect the pump to the rest of the plumbing. Keep track of the O-rings in the unions.
4. Remove the band clamp holding the pump halves together
5. Loosen the 2 stainless bolts holding the pump motor to the base
6. Move and angle the pump head away from the existing plumbing
7. Separate the pump head where band clamp came loose
8. To separate the halves, pull the strainer basket side of the pump head away from the motor. It comes straight off, but some twisting/wiggling may be required. Persistence is required but don't be rough with it. The resistance you feel is a large rubber O-ring sliding. If tempted to pry, use two plastic tools 180 degrees apart.
9. Remove the diffuser plate stainless screws and the plate.
10. Install a new seal
11. Remove the impeller bolt - REVERSE THREAD
12. Unscrew the impeller - normal thread
13. Remove the shaft seal
14. Remove the 4 bolts holding the motor to the rear pump plate and remove the plate
15. Tap the existing seal out of the pump plate using a suitable socket
16. Lubricate the outside of the new seal and push into place
17, Reassemble the pump plate to the motor
18. Install the rest of the shaft seal (carbon to carbon)
19. Install the pump impeller and smallest O-ring (optional on some models)
20. Tighten the center bolt, but not overtight
21. Install the diffuser plate and a new lubed O-ring
22. Lubricate the large O-ring with silicone lube and slide the pump halves back together
23. Tighten the band clamp using the old large O-ring or a new one if you have a seal kit. The large O-ring likes to move around sometimes.
24. Reorient the pump head back in line with your existing plumbing and tighten the union rings by hand. Make sure that the O-rings for the unions are still in place.
25. Reinstall the two large stainless bolts that hold the pump to the base
26. Add water to the strainer basket to prime the pump
27. Test your work

Installation of the new seals were a snap. The online instructions gave a lot of confidence. There were many O-rings in the kit that I didn't need so the purchase of only a pump seal would have worked on my Sta-Rite rebuild.
But the cost was negligible between the full kit and just the main seal.
(5 out of 5 stars) A must have for replacing pool motor
Reviewed By: Inyo Customer ()
I recently replaced my AO Smith 2 hp motor and decided to purchase the tune up kit as well. There is no sense in replacing the motor and not replacing the pump seals and O'rings. It's already a pain to change the motors out so do it right the first time and replace the seals.
