Also, the diagram is for a PTC relay, but that compressor is using an open coil magnetic relay

Something ain't right here, diagram shows the red belongs on a start capacitor but your compressor looks like it has been replaced at some point, and a non-capacitor compressor was used.  The upside down configuration is ok as long as the pins measure out ok, you need to measure continuity between the 3 pins and to ground to rule out an electrically failed compressor.

Gravel bases have not been used for a number of years.  If your resin is not caked, you are likely wasting your hundred bucks. If you do, make sure you don't fill the resin tank completely - the 13 inches of freeboard is required.

When you receive your lower distributor, check the length against the old one as the replacements are all one length and may need to be cut to the proper length. I always seal the bottom area where the foot valve connects to the tube with silicone (and allow to cure) this will prevent it from twisting and opening up to allow beads to enter.

To push the valve down into ghe resin, connect a bose to a faucet and run the water into the middle of the tube as you push it down - that will alow the valve to push through the resin without damage.

The nozzle venturi assembly should be replaced as the washers inside compress and reduce suction during brine draw.

As a rule, the check valve is built into the membrane housing - be certain that the membrane is installed in the right direction
