Pool motor stuck to pump

I have an Anthony Bronze pool pump. It started leaking so I looked to take it apart to install a new seal.

The bolts came off OK but the motor will not come off the pump body. I'm waiting for it to cool so I can cover it with WD-40.

Then I noticed the motor is missing a chunk of its housing by where one bolt used to be.

Can I ever hope to get a good seal without replacing the motor? If not I'm wondering if it isn't time to replace the whole unit.

My suggestion would be to start looking for a replacement pump. I'm not convinced you'll get a good seal if you do manage to get it back together. Plus, parts for that pump are becoming very scarce.
