Leaking well adapter


I have the above adapter and itís leaking where it bolts together. Can you unbolt it and change the seal/ gasket or will that disturb the pipe(s) in the well casing. Iím a diy guy and donít know a lot about wells but I have change the pump and the pressure tank (bladder less) already as the well is 17 years old. Itís about 150í if I remember right and uses a jet pump two pipes come from the pump to the adapter to the 2Ē casing.
thanks Iím advance.
Bob

That's called a deep well packer adapter..... Goulds AWJ2.
New adapter is painted blue.
I see the gasket but have not found it by itself.

Worst case you can get sheets of gasket material online or from most auto parts stores. You can use the old gasket as a template.

I believe the part he needs is the beveled rubber washer.
