Response to That would be the correct replacement motor. As far as it not priming, it's probably not putting out enough power if it's going bad. When replacing the motor, make sure you replace the shaft seal as well. The part number for that is spx1600z2 and if it's a saltwater pool the part number is 5250-235.
