Response to Hi, I have an old Hayward NorthStar SP4010X20NS I took out of service because a) it was screaming when turned on and b) it was an energy hog and I replaced it with a VS pump. But I have this old NorthStar on my workbench and I am considering the VS motor replacement for use as my water feature pump. Will this motor fit the NorthStar wet end ok? Any issues with doing so? And before I drop $700 on this project, is a wet-end likely to last forever? Thanks for any insight.
