    Does it matter if you install an older style cover without the 2 tabs onto a pump that has the motor with the two tabs? What is the purpose of the tabs anyways? It seems that the two terminal motors I have seen have the two tabs and so do one of my newer pumps that originally had the two terminal motor.

    The only thing those covers do is give rust a home !!! food for thought !!!

    It will likely clock the motor in the wrong orientation for the drain on the bottom to work right.
    I have replaced many motors that have seized up because the correct cover was not used.
