The excess glue on those LBs may not be workman-like

I didn't bother looking it up since there were no other heaters on-site and it was to late and to far afield to go get them. I just pulled the unit and replaced with a modern electronic OL starter. But apparently the correct size was smaller than the b9 since I had to bring them a new motor :-)

The tarded builder who closed in the covers like that pales in comparison to the tarded ''wiring'' person who put those 3 lb's like that.

If they had a problem with the heaters being tampered with putting in a solid state relay just made it that much easier

Nope, they aren't clever enough to get a penny in there. J/k. They can tamper with it all they like. It makes for easy service calls.
