The only question you asked that has not been addressed is the possibility of rebuilding the vacuum pot. I haven't seen any posts of that portion of the DISA commonly failing so I haven't been overly concerned about it. If someone knows if the vacuum pot has a high failure rate, please jump in. I don't see any easy way to repair or rebuild it, so I think that would require a new unit which I would suggest upgrading with new valve internals even while it's new.

Thanks for your input.

I thought I had read every page of the tread, but it is possible I had missed one, so, sorry if I had asked something that you had already answered. I will go back and look for the posts I obviously missed.
