Pump housing leaking

My pump is leaking around the metal band.  I have a Pac/Fab Challenger.  I have replaced the housing gasket but I am still not able to get it to seal.  It is not leaking around the shaft as I can tell this is pooling in the metal band.  What else might I replace, could the housing have a small crack?

Hello Michael - I would try installing the housing gasket one more time. Use some silicone or teflon lubricant on the gasket. As you are tightening the clamp, tap the clamp with a rubber mallet. This will help get a better seal. 

If that doesn't work, you may have a crack in the seal plate or front housing. All of these parts are available on our PacFab Challenger parts page.

Thank you for shopping with Inyo!
