    I'm trying to fix all the little worn out things on this mvp and I noticed the motor cap is cracked. I haven't attempted to take it off because I was struggling to find one. Can anyone verify if this is the cap I may be looking for?

    Here is a pic of the worn out broken one. Everything works fine but I'd like to button this thing up.

    50 bucks for that “water prevention” cap what a rip off. All these are supposed to do is “prevent” water from getting into the motor where it works its way past the shaft seal into the hydraulic tank. Here is a cover I made a long time ago for my pump set up. I used 10 bucks in aluminum and paint.
