The motor doesn't sound damage.But i'll take a look.MAN this bag was blocked all the way up into the hose!Luckily i think that blockadge stopped the water for the most part.

The Concept was missing the propulsion control knob,And the control rod fell into the handle,Of which i had to fix.The propulsion is AMAZING!Almost as good (If ot better!) Than Kirby's TechDrive!

Anyways,A little ways into propulsion testing,I heard a wierd noise.Thinking i has picked something up,I took the bottom plate off to discover this...

Welp,Off to opening up the Eureka!

I am opening up the Eureka Enviro-Vac to clean it out James,And i have the autopsy.
The motor's fan shroud has a slight layer of rust,But still in good shape.

Will post after pictures soon.
