So 2.7 ecostar with sand pump 2” pipe single main drain connected to skimmer 4 jets , , , , ,

Oh and a whip system lol took me a gooood min to figure that out 🤣
So yup motor and drive went out after 6 yrs of purchase date. Guy came connected a volt meter I’m assuming and said cheaper to get a new vs replacing the two.
My questions are:
the bearings on the century motor M48A40A04 58J Size 203 and 304 ?
Has anyone gotten or looked into the pumps century make ?

Welcome to TFP.

What are you trying to do if the EcoStar drive is bad?
The Leslie pools guy came out, he looked, and said motor and drive are bad. Since I assume he knew I took it apart. Motor had a bad rear bearing causing the wet end to grind itself to death. I believe drive is good. Motor stuck caused jammed up and computer kicked into Saftey mode. But what do I know lol

I’m try to find out motor bearings sizes where to buy them and if any one which is ground on motor from the red, black and blue ?
