Century (Formerly A.O. Smith) Motor Review

Just a for what it's worth thread...
15 months ago I installed a Century (Formerly A.O. Smith) motor. It started making some noise 2 days ago so I started limited use protocol. It seized yesterday.
Luckily, the new one also came in yesterday. I live in Atlanta. It's not like I live on the coast. I don't think it matters so much who I purchased this from as much
as where it was made. This one was made in Mexico. My new replacement is from Taiwan. We'll see how long this one lasts.
Sincerely, Dave.

The old one:

Obviously, the paint was not very well sprayed...
