Vico Ultimax Pump and Motor 370V Capacitor

Rebuilt my vico Ultimax 5hp.. New bearings and seals. Went to dry test and it hums. If I turn the shaft the capacitor kicks in and will run, once I shut it off it just hums until I turn the shaft. I think I need a new capacitor. Before I order one online I would like to make sure I’m ordering the right one. I’ve attached a photo of the one I pulled off my pump. 370 VAC 50/60 hz. The large print number 313, but the other is B 70 C.

We currently do not stock capacitors but here is a link to Grainger:

VICO Ultimax Spa Pump with GE Motor 2352 Cracked Impeller

You helped me get the upper bearing out of a GE 2352 motor driving a VICO Ultimax Spa Pump today. When cleaning things up, I noticed a crack in the tube sticking out of the impeller. It doesn’t look critical to me for sealing. What do you think?

Just cut the impeller flush after the cracks and you will be okay. If you need anymore help, please contact us.
