Changed a few hoses wanted them clear so I could see water was flowing had a few hoses ran in my opinion incorrectly.  

Hope to have some pics of the motor going back in soon.

Are those ballast hoses?

Yes just wanted to see water is moving when hard tanks are filling and I can't see it.

Server crash, then backups didn't go right, so TMC went through a time warp back to the last good backup dated 5 Feb 2021.  Anything between then and early March is just gone....

@Bradley Thornton, you may want to consider boots over those terminals on the breaker, especially if that plate is grounded to the block?

Is your stainless plate attached to an aluminum bracket?  If so, that might cause an issue with corrosion.

Yes it is and I may redo later but I plan on keeping an eye out on that for now.
