Pump Information
Ampco Pumps Company
Instructions
The care required of this pump, while nominal, is very important. We recommend a careful
review of the installation and maintenance covered in this manual to ensure extended troublefree service.
Location
The motors used on Ampco pump units have been selected as the best for the anticipated
environment. For greatest service life, mount the pump and motor where the environment is
relativity clean, dry, and non-corrosive. Standard totally enclosed motors may be installed
where dirt, moisture, and mild corrosion are present or in outdoor locations. Specialty motors
may be required for moist, corrosive, or explosive environments. Motor drain plugs (if not
equipped with automatic drains) must be removed periodically to drain accumulated
condensation. Pump units should be located where daily visual inspection is possible and no
surrounding structure interferes with ventilating air over or through the motor.
Installation
Installation of Ampco pumps should be made as close to the supply of liquid as possible, with
short and direct suction piping. Avoid high points in the piping where air pockets can form. The
suction and discharge piping should be simple with the connections properly aligned to prevent
any strain from being placed on the pump casing. Provisions should be made for pipe
expansion and contraction in services handling hot or cold liquids. Base-mounted pedestal
pumps must be realigned AFTER installation and piping is completed.
Rotation
Check the direction of rotation BEFORE starting the pump. Correct rotation is
counterclockwise as viewed from the pump inlet. Incorrect rotation may cause catastrophic
failure. Close coupled pumps will be equipped with single phase motors properly sequenced or
with three phase motors labeled to indicate required power sequence ABC or CBA for correct
rotation. Use a phase sequence indicator to identify the power source sequence. For base
mounted pumps disconnect the coupling and check the motor rotation while disconnected from
the pump.
Maintenance
Daily observation of Ampco pumps while in operation is the ounce of prevention
needed to extend the service life. Mechanical seals are selected for maximum life with
due consideration to the economy of the installation. The seal is the only expendable
item. Other pump parts are designed for indefinite life expectancy, except as they may
be corroded and/or eroded by aggressive products or by misapplication such as under
sizing, oversizing, cavitation, etc. Bearings on some pedestal pumps and some motors
are pre-lubricated and require no additional lubrication.
Ampco Pumps Company K Series Manual M-019 Rev B 07.16

Service
Ampco Pumps Company
The schedule for re-greasing other types of bearings will vary, depending on size,
speed, duty, and environment. For guidance, a steady running, indoor installation in
a relatively clean atmosphere at 4°C (104°F) ambient should not require grease for
two years. Care should also be taken not to over grease motors. Pumps handling
corrosive or otherwise aggressive solutions should be flushed with clean water
after each use because stagnant conditions are usually most corrosive. In
seawater, Ampco Alloy pumps provide cathode protection for stainless steel parts.
To prevent crevice corrosion and pitting, drain and then flush the pump with fresh
water when inactive for periods greater than one week.
Ampco KC2 and KP2 pumps fitted with standard mechanical seals have all-metal
seal parts of 316 stainless steel, carbon rotating face, ceramic stationary seat, and
Buna-N elastomers. Other seal types are supplied when specified. Optional
materials such as Viton, EPDM, or Teflon elastomers, Tungsten Carbide, Silicon
Carbide, or Ni-Resist faces can be supplied when requested. The mechanical seal
should be replaced at the first sign of leakage where the shaft enters the pump.
Leakage may cause motor bearing damage. Also, since the primary seal surfaces
are lapped to precise flatness, the seal should be replaced whenever the pump is
dismantled to the point of separating the seal faces. Always keep a replacement
seal kit on hand. It includes a complete seal along with the gasket and o-ring
required to rebuild the pump.
There may be other pump assemblies; parts and seal arrangements not shown or otherwise
described in this pamphlet, which require the same philosophy of seal positioning. It is
suggested that highlights of these instructions be applied while paying close attention
to parts arrangement during dismantling.
Service
Dismantle and Replace Parts as Follows:
Before attempting any service on the pump or motor, disconnect or lock out
electrical power to the pump motor. If the pump and motor are to be removed as a
unit, note the wiring configuration. Use colored or numbered tape to mark the wire
connections of the motor and power source, to retain correct direction of rotation
when reconnecting. Incorrect rotation may cause catastrophic failure.
It is recommended that the complete unit be removed and serviced on a workbench.
For the close coupled KC2, disconnect the power and mark the wires for reconnection.
For the base mounted KP2, disengage the coupling and remove the pump and
pedestal.

1. Remove the suction cover by unbolting the four cap screws (9/16” wrench). Note the
condition of the gasket, which will adhere either to the suction cover or the casing.
2. Unscrew the impeller from the shaft, turning in a counterclockwise direction; Loctite
used during assembly may require heating impellers of all type KC2 and KP2 to assist
in removal. Apply approximately 350°F heat to the center of the impeller. A screwdriver
slot on the motor shaft opposite the pump is provided for steadying the shaft. Use of a
strap wrench on the impeller hub is recommended to prevent marring. Otherwise, file
or polish out wrench marks before reusing the impeller.
The fluid end of the pump is now sufficiently dismantled for completing most
repairs and replacements, including the mechanical seal.
3. If it is necessary to repair or replace the motor of a close coupled assembly or the
bearing adapter of a pedestal assembly, unbolt the cap screws fastening the pump to
the motor or pedestal, thus disengaging the casing and bracket.
The mechanical seal is the only expendable pump part. It is suggested that the
complete mechanical seal, both stationary and rotating members, be replaced
whenever dripping or leakage occurs at the shaft, or whenever parts are
removed to the point of separating the primary sealing surfaces.
4. Remove the rotating parts of the mechanical seal from the impeller’s shaft like
Extension. The seals flexible bellows may stick tightly to the impeller
stem. Bathe in the oil to soften the adhesive, or cut away with a knife. Remove the oring from the shaft I.D.
5. The stationary seal and its cup gasket or o-ring may be removed while the casing is
in an assembled position with a wire hook (coat hanger wire). Insert the hook between
the I.D. of the seat and the shaft and pull forward, or remove the casing and press the
seal out.
6. Thoroughly clean the impeller stem, seat cavity, and motor shaft with solvent and
dry with a clean cloth.
An anti-seize lubricant was originally applied to the I.D. of the impeller that fits
over the shaft and is retained by an o-ring. Either preserve this lubricant or add
fresh lubricant to the I.D., the shaft, and replace the o-ring. One drop of oil
applied on the shaft will prevent the o-ring from binding on the shaft while
assembling the impeller.
7. Lightly oil bore and finger press stationary seat with gasket or o-ring into its cavity.
Seat (usually ceramic) is fragile, do not abuse.

8. Clean the polished face of the stationary seat with a lint-free cloth or tissue, and
lightly coat this surface with SAE-10 or equivalent oil. Care should be taken that the
cleaning material and the oil are free of foreign particles. Do not use grease or allow
grease onto the sealing surfaces.
9. Place the rotating portion of the mechanical seal on the shaft like extension of the
impeller which should be lightly oiled (SAE 10W-30) to facilitate sliding of the bellow by
softening an adhesive film on the seal. (Use soap, glycerin, etc. if oil is not permitted
i.e. EPDM). Do not use grease, as this will prevent the adhesive film from resetting.
Final adherence to the impeller stem is essential for shaft, impeller, and seal to rotate
as a unit. First place the spring retainer and spring over the impeller shaft. Then press
the carbon rotating subassembly down the impeller shaft until it engages the spring.
Do not continue to slide the assembly down the shaft once the rotating assembly has
engaged the spring. Inspect the carbon sealing face and remove any foreign particles
with a lint-free cloth or tissue. Do not allow grease on the sealing surface.
10. Place the impeller with mechanical seal in place on the drive shaft. Slight pressure
is required to start the o-ring on the shaft. Proceed to screw the impeller clockwise onto
the threaded shaft, utilizing the slot on the opposite end of the shaft to steady the shaft.
Hand tighten or use a strap wrench, or other non-marring device such as a jar opener.
11. The pump assembly is completed by reinstalling the suction cover plate and its
gasket. Be sure the casing and gasket surfaces are relatively clean and free of foreign
particles.
12. Your pump is now ready to be reinstalled into its accompanying pipe system and
the motor reconnected.
One way to damage a new seal is to run it dry. Be sure the pump is in place and
primed before operating or checking rotation.
Note: Starting the motor in the direction of unthreading the impeller will result in
jamming and damaging the bearing and possibly other motor and pump parts. Motor
connections should have been marked to avoid this possibility. Also, an economical
phase sequence indicator will identify your A-B-C connections. If a reassembled pump
unit is not going to be put back in service immediately, or if there is a real possibility for
incorrect start up rotation, a suitable thread-locking compound may be used (i.e.
Loctite #271).

2. Impellers that are trimmed to a diameter that we don’t regularly use are not returnable. Credit will be
determined on a case-by-case basis.
3. Used seals and motors are not returnable.
Credits
Credit will be issued only after parts are returned and inspected. Customer is responsible for packaging parts so
they are returned in “as new” condition. Any labor required by Ampco to return the parts to “as new” condition
will be deducted from the credit.
