You might also want to think about getting a case drain line with a small 10lb check valve inline drilled and threaded into the motor to take any excess back pressure away, that might help with the vibrations as well.

Ok, thanks...that makes sense. It doesn't vibrate that often...which makes me think it happens when a piece of wood gets stuck in the drum or something. I plumbed a case drain on it, but no check valve.
