I JB Welded the plasitc sheath onto the motor shaft and that's when I  
discovered the hairline crack running down the length of the sheath.  
But it held well. However in the process of all that the 2 shouldered  
rubber grommet/washer things fell off and I can't figure out how they  
go back on. Each orientation leaks. So I bought a new motor from, because they had a page on the problem and fix of my  
particular DW.

The old motor is 3 amps and about the size of an econobox starter.  
What arrived is a generic, one size fits all motor that clips into a  
sump that replaces my DW's sump. The motor is .65 amps and weighs  
about 3 oz. It doesn't feel like there's any metal in it at all.  
Should I even bother putting it in? I looks like it'd have trouble  
powering a goldfish tank. Are looks deceiving, and a motor that draws  
1/6 the power can really do the job?
