I have 2 of them. Only issue i have had was a broken cable, knock on wood.
They can be bought pretty cheap.

Just my $.02.

that is what i run, and dont see me changing anytime soon. They are a reliable set-up, however a cable adjustment is in order once in awhile. Also be careful with the set screws for the cables, sometimes they can strip and can be a pain to re-tap.

I used an 1987 8' pro model up till last year.Keep silicone sealer on the cable ends of the pump and never sieze on the set screws and heavy guage wire on the motor and you should have no problems.Order a service manual from CPW and a parts list also.
