    Interesting link you've provided! I have never before encountered a page that had absolutely no information and no clickable links on it. That was a first!

    I don't know your problem but I'm amazed that the pump drive is a chain! No idea what's going on but a chain drive would be worth looking at, for sure.

    You're probably right, but it seems the discussion that 'all' are in agreement over is that the OP is a jerk for his pricing as well as his requirements for viewing the items.

    In a dust collection fan/blower, with all gates closed, the fan sort of idles as no air is being 'pushed'. This would put the least strain on the motor and if a bearing were getting bad, it would...

    The 'surging' can definitely be heard on the video you posted (nice job) and it could actually be a bearing headed to the happy hunting ground, but it surely isn't anything electrical.
