Installation Tips

Pressing Mechanical seal in: Use an appropriate tapered tool (example: some 1/2″ extensions will work) that will only press on the metal ID. Pressing on the black carbon sealing material will crack it !

NEXT, I think the best way to set depth, is…
Install the seal only, then place the impeller on top of seal (with thrust
washer underneath too), the OD of impeller base should stand up above ‘flush’ with
the case about 0.050″, carefully adjust depth as necessary.
The seal has about 0.100″ travel, so that way, when installed it is pushed
down approximately mid-way in it’s travel.

Proper installation of thrust bearings. Arrows (highlighted in blue) must point toward each other, AND/OR thicker flanges with words on outer races will face away from each other.
