Response to I’m replacing the motor on my pool. The motor on now is the A.O Smith Cat. B129, 1.5 hp. The pump is a Hayward 3010x. Does this motor bolt up directly or does it need an adapter? Also, do I need the tune-up kit. The motor makes a high pitched squeal when running and does not pump water. Does that sound like the motor?
