I replaced my pool pump (A.O. Smith 1/2 HP Square Flange 48Y Full Rate Motor - SQ1052) using your brilliant video - 

and everything went perfectly. Until I turned it on. It turned on for a couple of seconds and then nothing. Before I take it all apart again, are there any tips you can give me?

Many thanks for your amazing videos and support.

I would recommend double-checking the proper voltage that you have running to your motor, make sure the motor is set for the correct voltage, is wired correctly, make sure the shaft seal is installed correctly then bench test the motor with the impeller off. This should lead you in the right direction.
