Anyone have an idea how much this motor upgrade costs?
To bring, (DIY), a unit up to latest spec ran about $800 for parts and shipping. This would be a for CPP2, CPA a little less.

I get your point about leveling the cylindrical drum side to side. I agree that front to back is all that really matters.
I was trying to emphasize the importance of levelling the drum. Sometimes my lift does not go all the way down without a little nudge. Sometimes when changing out different drum sizes I forget to reposition the rollers and the roller is on the narrow edge at the bottom of the drum setting the drum off level. If the water level is too high in the upper compartment the drum might float. I usually check it both ways so that I don't absent-mindedly miss something.
I am looking at two different CPPs on the used market. One turns out to have the double bearing rotation motor, which is the first upgrade. Is anyone out there successfully using a 3000 series drum on this vintage CPP?
Ain't this a great group!
I verify the temp controls with a darkroom thermometer poked next to a bottle after all are in.
Use a small level to place on the drum/tank itself, after filled with water, and rotating in the bath, adjust to near perfect. (a little extra chems will compensate for not being 100 % perfect...)
Pay attention to the "height" of the drum/tank in the bath, make sure it don't "float" during the spin.
Good luck, and welcome back to the darkside!
