    You might find a shop that will rewind. They are getting scarse in doing that. I'll do some searches in the morning and see what I can come up with.

    Chris does yours have the round motor or the kinda square looking one.

    If we can nail a few things down I think I may have one of those motors. I know I have two pump systems and I do think both have the motors. I know both were working when I removed them. I amgoing to use one but the other will be up for sale.

    Well I went and done some research on that perticular engine and the pump and moter only sells as one component and the cost is 912.00 bucks.

    I have received some info on these trim unit motors from a very reliable source

    Those motors can be repaired, not rewound, There's a contact thing in the top area that has a complete replacement board. Contacts and such. The repair procedure is in the manuel. If it has had water intrusion then it maybe beyond repair, but if its only the contacts, A new circuit type board with contacts is availa

    Makes the price of one of those aftermarket trim tilt units look good.
