All jucuzzi pumps are some of the most difficult to repair.Pump front should seperate from body(volute) of pump by means of screws, or some kind of band. Diffuser should have ss screws, or
be held in plsce by notches or both. Impellor spins counter clockwise to come off. Can only remove impellor with impellor wrench, or very strong hand. Rear of motor must be held in place with normally a 7-16 wrench, allen head wrench or screwdriver. Depends on manufacturer of motor. Then impellor can be removed!
Should replace shaft seal under impellor. Can seperate body of pump from motor by turning four outer bolts on back of motor. Must mark rear cover of motor so lines up exact for reassebly. Ussually 1/4 inch socket wrench.Seal can be pushed out from back to front with the corrrect size socket and a very light hammer.
Try to factory Jacuzzi seal, they are better than aftermarket.
Coat rubber on seal with light silicone, and press back into place without touching or marring seal face. Best way is use other half of seal (spring piece) to gently but firmly reseat seal. Examine body from rear to make sure seal seats. Reassemble as taken apart, or just take to a qualified service tech at a well established pool/spa place. Kirk

I am rebuilding a Northstar pump. I thought I had an o-ring between the diffuser and the impeller ring when disasembling. I don't see the on the schematic however.

The impeller ring moves freely and does not use an o ring. The front of the diffuser does have one. It sounds like they gave you an extra. BTW I have found that Northstar pumps get about 4 years out of their motors. That is about half the average life. I hope you are getting longer than 4 years. If not, it may be worth changing to a different pump.

How to change the seals on a jacuzzi magnun force 1 hp pool pump

If you haven't already figured out how to change the seals on your Jacuzzi Magnum Force pump, I can help by supplying a diagram.
Here is the parts explosion for that pump.
Start by removing the case/basket assembly, then the diffuser to get to the impeller. Loosen the impeller to get to the seal plate.
When going to the trouble of changing the shaft seals one should change all the hosing seals at the same time because its a lot of work.

Remove impeller

Based on the limited info. For most jacuzzi pumps, you will need to remove the lock ring and pull the pump apart to expose the impeller/diffuser. Next, remove the diffuser to expose the impeller. Depending on what type of motor you have, either remove the cover plate or cover cap to expose the shaft at the rear of the motor. There are three types of shafts, one is slotted so you will need a large screwdriver to hold it in place. One is larger and can be held with a wrench or special shaft tool. One is more internal and has a switch at the end so it has to be held with a 7/16 wrench under the switch midway between the switch and the housing. You may have to remove the capacitor to gain access with the wrench.
There may be a lock screw holding the impeller to the shaft, if so, remove it by turning it clockwise (left hand threads). Then you can remove the impeller by turning it counter-clockwise. They can get stuck on the threads and you may need an impeller wrench or something suitable to give you some mechanical advantage to remove it.
