What a difference this new upgraded whisper quiet motor rebuild kit has made!

Suction is fantastic now, and honestly I thought I miss wired the motor as I did not hear it running on first test...too funny. When the floor access hatch at inside helm is in place, it truly is "whisper quiet"...figuring at least 3x quieter than old motor (20 years old). This will make the Admiral happy when 3am visits to head happen...

Hint: pull out old motor and bellows ensemble from the location, and rebuild on bench vs crouching all that time doing it all down below.

I highly recommend this upgrade!
Thanks for the info, I just ordered the kit from Environmental Marine for $250. This is for our guest head. Seems most of our guests don't like to pee on top of pee during the night!
