I posted these pics in another thread about my motor, and I'm sorry if I'm starting another thread that's a continuation of another thread...
It appears as if I might have some cavitation damage to my wet end, which could be leaving me with a really nice 2-speed motor but no usable wet end. If my wet end is indeed trashed, should I replace the parts (assuming I can even get a new body/volute!) or should I be looking more at a new pump that would accept the 2-speed motor I have (i.e. find a single speed pump with a motor that has a similar SFHP rating and flange type)
I don't want to go through another smoking motor if the damage that's been done to my current wet end is rendering it useless or less effective enough that it might cause another motor some serious damage.
Damage to the volute:
One fin on the impeller:
