Weird vacuum motor problem?

I was having a weird vacuum motor problem?  It seemed to work when it wanted to, but it always was pushing lots of air out of the motor.  I was going to check the motor brushes anyway and noticed the seal was gone.  I believe the seal wore away and caused the suction problem.  So I went to Lowes and purchased some rubber gaskets.

I cut a hole in the rubber gasket and it started to work again.  Yea!
