Yes, as Jim says, and an undervoltage lockout, because this kind of thing is cooled by the water pumped through it.

Note: 5 AMP fuse is required for installation of SKU 66094 Pump. 15 AMP fuse is required for SKU 66095 Pump.
A BP 75watt solar panel should provide about 6.5 amps in full sun. This would be enough to power the motor. Not sure what your application is for this, but the pump will not run at night, and will run slower or even stop depending on clouds. You may need to include a controller of some sort to prevent from damaging the solar panels as motors tend to draw a lot of current when they are starting. If you want to include batteries to run this at night you'll now talking about a Charging Controller, so you don't overcharge the batteries. You're going to have to do some math to calculate recharge rate for the battery (or batteries). I would guess if you had two batteries (automobile type), and two solar panels, you should be able to keep the pump running, but then cloud cover over several day could deplete the batteries.
You don't "convert" it to solar, you just provide enough energy to it from a solar panel to run. It needs around 4Amps to run, so either you need a panel that can supply 4 A at 12V or you have to charge a battery/ Steve
i dont know much about solar power but you would need a solar panel a battery like a car battery or boat battery. also you would need a capacitor to bring up the voltage from the panel which would charge the battery. then you would run the pump off the battery. i am not sure of all this info so dont rely on me. this is just a guess.
