Why not just get a new motor? I assume that is what went bad. I know the skimmer is discontinued but you should still be able to find the motor somewhere.

Looked everywhere for the original motor and no luck. Tried a Sicce PSK 1000 and it did not workout

another vote for regal 150INT.

if you start messing with other skimmer pumps you will probably pull your hair out.

skimmer pumps are tested and matched with not only the pump flow ratings, but also the needle wheel impellers they use and not all are alike. a little thing like needle wheel diameter or even the size and count of the pins can drastically change a skimmers performance (or non-performance).
