I purchased all the necessary pieces to retrofit it to my motor and pump I kept from my previous D.E filter. Everything now connects perfectly but in NH we don't open our pools until the middle of May but I fully expect it to work great.

I had this exact model filter and could not get the filter fingers clean even with TSP soaking and repeated washing. It was cheaper to just buy this whole filter than to repair the old one.
