You did well to find one now (if a new one) as they are discontinued I recall. Did you find a new one or a used one?

Not new but in pretty good shape.

Free - as not changing over (dirt & hair blockage).
Along with foot pedal not working. -  the clear plastic, that think had degraded/broken down enough & stressed,  to finally break when did the teardown.

Did notice that where the changeover valve is screwed onto the chassis that one screw point was starting to split the plastic - Recollect that being mentioned by someone else, somewhere. Wonder if there is a plastic glue/mend that might nip further splitting in the bud?

Excluding those issues tho, otherwise in amazing condition  - would be worth trying to find the replacement parts or to figure out a way to cobble something up.
