Need a recommendation for a 1HP 1.5" inlet/outlet single speed pump

Hi all, my Hayward pump with an AO Smith motor died at the end of the season. I'm going to pick up a replacement next month so I'm ready for the spring/summer season next year, but I'm having a heck of a time finding a replacement.

I don't want a VS, just want a single speed 1HP pump to match what I had before. But I also want a 1.5" inlet and all I can seem to find are 2" inlet pumps. And I'm not clear on how I'd even do an adapter on both the inlet and outlet from 2" to 1.5.
