Question about Pool & Spa
I replaced the capacitor on the top of the motor but am still having the problem of it not starting. It looks like there may be another capacitor on the end but will have to remove e motor to get to it
Depending on which motor is on your XP2, the bigger capacitor on the side is the run capacitor not the start capacitor.
Typically there is a plastic shroud on the rear of the motor, inside you should find the start capacitor. It is smaller that you might expect usually around - 7/16" x 2-3/4"
Note the part number and the MFD range rating.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
Your wet end was most likely the 3HP version all along. Most pump manufacturers use the motor service factor to exaggerate the HP rating to try and sell the unit as 'better' than the competitors. You are best off using the part number molded into the original impeller as a means of identifying what pump you really have and ordering the wet end based on that information. If you can get the 8 digit number please post it in a comment to this message and we can verify the correct wet end for you. Another alternative will be to use a Waterway Executive model wet end if yours is indeed a discontinued 4HP rating.
If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

You will need to remove the six bolts/nuts on the wet end to expose the impeller. At the rear of the motor, remove the cap covering the shaft and restrain the shaft and spin the impeller off (counter-clockwise). Check to see if there is a screw in the center of the impeller and remove it by turning clockwise (if applicable). Once the impeller is off, you can remove the four through bolts from the rear of the motor using a 5/16 nut driver and the wet end should come right off.
