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.
