Pump seal is leaking water. I removed the screws holding the pump together. How do I remove the impellor to get at the seal?


This is from one of my previous posts, may be some extra steps, but should cover what you need... Turn off the electric first. Now split the pump in two by removing the large clamp or 4-6 bolts holding the two halves together. (not the 4 bolts holding the motor to seal plate, but the the bolts holding the seal plate to the seal plate housing). Once you remove the clamp or bolts, the motor with seal plate, diffuser, and Impeller can all be pulled back away from the pump. Then disconnect the electrical from the motor and you can pull the motor with the seal plate, and impeller all the way out and work on it. To get to the impeller, you need to remove the diffuser (plastic housing that goes around the impeller) usually by a series of 3 to 6 small screws. To remove the impeller you need to lock the motor and unscrew impeller. Depending on the motor, you remove a cap in the middle of the tail piece and hold with a wrench, or remove a cap that covers the whole end and grab the shaft with a wrench (usually 7/16") by sliding it under the thermal overload switch, or removing the capacitor for even easier access. Once you've locked the shaft, you can just unscrew impeller. If the impeller has a bolt or screw in the middle remove that first. this screw will be reverse thread so make sure you don't turn the wrong way and break or strip. If there is no screw, or after you've removed it, just spin the impeller off (standard thread). If you can't do it by hand and assuming you don't have an impeller wrench, be very careful and use a large pliers, pipe wrench, or strap wrench to loosen it. After that you unbolt the motor from the seal plate, pull the seal plate away from motor (this removes half the seal), and then pop the other half of the seal from the seal plate. Make sure to replace the shaft seal, and use a tiny bit of pool lube on the rubber parts when installing, but keep the white ceramic, and black graphite surfaces 100% free of any dirt, grease, etc while working with them. Installation is pretty much just the reverse. Install half the seal into the seal plate. Install the seal plate onto motor and bolt into place. Install other half of seal onto shaft. Screw impeller onto shaft and install screw (if one was there to start with) in center of impeller (reverse thread). install diffuser over impeller make sure it is centered and doesn't rub the impeller hub. Install new diffuser and valute o-rings. Hookup wiring before re-attaching to rest of pump. Clamp or bolt back together. Pour plenty of water into pot to prime and flip the motor on for a sec or two. Pour some more water. Install pot lid. You should be good to go. Keep in mind there are many different pumps and some variations to the above instructions, but the above should cover most situations. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave a good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

How does the spring go back on the impeller?


You will need a new seal if the spring has come apart from the rubber. Almost any time you remove the impeller you should change the seal. The half of the seal that has the ceramic goes into the seal plate rubber first. The half with the spring slides on to the impeller shaft with the rubber first so the graphite faces the ceramic. Both pieces should have a small amount of teflon grease applied first to be sure they go on smooth.

How do I remove the pb460 booster pump in order to install the new one? Does the water have to be turned off from the pool?


You are trying to remove the pump so you can replace the impeller correct?
To remove the impeller you do not need to remove the whole pump. Turn off the electric first. Then just remove the several bolts and separate the back half from the front. Then disconnect the electrical from the motor and your can pull the motor with the seal plate, and impeller all the way out and work on it. To remove the impeller you need to lock the motor and unscrew impeller. Depending on the motor, you remove a cap in the middle of the tailpiece and hold with a wrench, or remove a cap that covers the whole end and grab the shaft with a wrench (usually 7/16") by sliding it under one of the components (not sure exact part off top of my head have to look at it) and then turning impeller. If the impeller has a bolt or screw in the middle remove that first. It should be reverse thread so make sure you don't turn the wrong way and break or strip. If there is no screw, or after you've removed it, just spin the impeller off (it should be counter clockwise standard thread). If you can't do it by hand and assuming you don't have an impeller wrench, be very careful and use a large pliers, pipe wrench, or strap wrench to loosen it. After that you unbolt the motor from the seal plate, pull the seal plate away from motor (this removes half the seal), and then pop the other half of the seal from the seal plate. Make sure replace the shaft seal, and use a tiny bit of pool lube on the rubber parts when installing, but keep the white and black ceramic surfaces 100% free of any dirt, grease, etc while working with them

How tough is it to change water pump impeller on 15hp johnson


There is no special tricks.Unbolt the gearshift linkage that has access through the side of the leg.Usually a small plate.Unbolt the lower g/box.4 bolts I think.The box should then drop.If not,use a rubber hammer and be patient.Put the lower skeg of the g/box in a vice to make things easier.NOW.When you lift the housing of the w/pump take a note of which way the impellar pump lobes are curled.DON'T put the new impellar in the wrong way.It's probably worth putting in a new seal whilst it's apart.You spin the housing or imp. as you put it together.Use a small bit of grease for the initiall dry start-up.Put some very good grease on the top splines on the driveshaft.It goes straight into the crankshaft.If it corrodes,nothing comes apart.As you put the g/box back on,spin the prop so the splines go back in.There is no special alignment.Gearchange linkage and you go fishing.(take the prop off and regrease the splines on the shaft of it)Hope this helps

Water pump is leaking on my 2001 Yamaha YZF 426 motorcycle.


First you remove the four 8mm bolt that attach the water pump cover to the side cover, the lowest bolt will drain the coolant. next you remove the coolant pipe with one 8mm bolt. The water pump cover like any part that has been in place for years may need some force to remove and that is why you will find two tabs around the outside of the pump cover for prying it off.

Once you have the cover off the impeller unscrews by way of a built in 10mm nut. This nut is right hand threaded and is removable by rotating it counter clockwise with preferably a 6 point socket as a 12 point socket may round the nut sides since the impeller and built in nut are made of aluminum.

To replace the twin seals (one for water/coolant and one for oil) you must remove the engine side cover from the motor and pull the impeller shaft out from the engine side of the cover. After the shaft has been removed the bearing is pulled out with a bearing puller or sometimes it can be removed by pushing it out from the outside in with a makeshift driver but the bearing can be damaged by this method and it is not recommended. The old seals can now be pulled out or pushed out from the opposite side.

To replace the new seals you must drive them in perpendicular to the impeller shaft with the manufacture markings to the inside. The water seal is installed from the outside and the oils seal from the inside.

There is a tool used for installing the seals called a seal driver but you could make one in a pinch. The seal driver makes contact with the outside diameter of the seal where it is solid and has a metal core. The inside diameter is soft and flexible and should not be used to push the seal in place however it can be used to keep the seal driver centered over the outer diameter and to keep the seal moving in a strait line perpendicular to the impeller shaft.

Once the new seals are in place they should be greased with some lithium soap based grease.

Install the bearing and reassemble the impeller shaft then you are ready to reassemble the engine side cover and water pump housing but make sure you spin the water pump impeller slowly as you install the engine side cover as the impeller shaft is driven off the engine shaft behind it and the shaft needs to be aligned in order for it to fall in place (do not try to force the cover on).
