Bad thermoswitch (probable) and worn/dirty brushes in the motor.

Put 12 volts directly to pump. If it runs, yer out 116.00 for the relay - it
controls both seperately. If it don't run, yer out 135.00 for the pump and
maybe still another 116.00 for the relay. I bought a used one from Shokan
fer 50.00 - had to send the 1st one back - it was bad too...

One of the 1st things I did, before I found the list - the factory upgrade
to that problem is a  4" long molded 45 degree angle hose that the dealer
sold me fer 24.00 with the story it was different sized at each end - I
still have the receipt to remind me just how much of an ass he is.
