I have a Davey pool pump and there sounds like a stone is in the impeller how do I open it and clean it out

The easiest way to check would be to put your fingers or a thin but long object through the hole at the bottom of the pump basket which leads to the impeller. Make sure the impeller turns. If the impeller turns there is nothing stuck in it. More than likely the bearings have gone bad which is common. Any small motor repair facility should be able to fix this or your local pool man.

How to install a mechanical seal ?

I would suggest you try and find a schematic of the and go from there.
Here's a search for that pump
My experience with seals on those types of pumps(never done davies) is to remove the outboard housing--- then remove the impeller----take the nut off---then get a piece of brass or very hard plastic (buffer)-- put this on the end of the shaft---then hit it with a hammer---you will need help with this as someone to pull on the impeller while you strike the buffer---after that done, then remove the inside housing---find a socket or piece of pipe/tubing that the size of the seal and drive it out----depending on mfg the seal's removal usually it's is driven from the impeller side out of the inboard housing (some are opposite)---it's nice to have a press but not everybody has one in their cellar----make sure you clean and buff the shaft before reversing procedure careful not to hit cut or score new seal when installing it-- that's about the best I can do for you---it's like trying to cut hair over a telephone
