The impeller on the Magnum pump unthreads counter clockwise as do other impellers. There is a shaft of the motor that runs the length of the motor, on the back of the motor when you take the bell housing off you will see a small silver spot with a **** in it for a standard screwdriver. Put the biggest one in there you can and then grab the impeller and turn it counter clock wise and it should unthread. Sometimes they won't if it has been on there a number of years. You will need to break it off if it doesn't unthread. Then just purchase a new Impeller for the Jacuzzi Magnum Pump.

You know, I have made some amazing repairs on plastic items using nothing more than a soldiering iron! If you have the piece that broke off, you can carefully melt it back together. You can add more to the weld if you match the type of plastic but not too much or you imbalance it. In this case it looks like PVC. To repair it without the missing piece, form it out of epoxy putty, roughly shape it just before it sets up solid, & sand to finish.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
There is no spacer. The impeller's internal nut and the shaft's shoulder set the spacing. The most likely problem is either the spring portion of the seal is not fully seated into the pump housing or the ceramic portion not fully seated into the impeller. You should also be sure you removed ALL of the old seal and parts. Many people leave the ceramic's boot in place and then the new seal seat will not seal properly.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the prompt response. You solved my problem! The spring seal was not seated all the way but it was not obvious to me - maybe a 64th of an inch made the difference."
Pump seal is in two pieces. The piece with the spring should be easy to remove. To remove the piece that is inside the motor side of the pump housing, place the housing with the side that should be facing the motor downdwards on a flat surface. The hole in the housing is larger than the seal, so use a screwdriver and, placing first on one side of the seal and then the other, strive the handle of the screwdriver sharply and the seal should pop out the bottom. The seal is rubber, with a ceramic insert, so if you don't tap the screwdriver too sharply the insert won't be damaged. In any case, it's a good idea to replace the entire seal if you have had to open the pump and remove the impeller
