    Found a place that had parts for a DB3 but they were all listed as obsolete.

    You can check your Grainger catalog for a number 200 shaft seal. There is an industry standard for these things, and all the links for a Jacuzzi seal say it's a 200

    But if it was recommended to me to replace all the parts when I disassemble? seems a shame to go through all this trouble and not new everything up.

    Pump and parts may be discontinued. At 11 years of age, the innards should be fine. Buy a shaft seal and play around with the pump some Sunday afternoon when the football game stinks.
