Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

    Re: force tilt pump diagram

    j bossman, sorry,the springs go in the brush holder first then the brush. take a few strands of fine wire{strip from a piece of 14,12 or 10ga wire ** and put over the end of the brush,then take the wire ends to the outside edge of the cap and bend the wires up over the top of the cap.do this to both brushes. the ball bearing goes on the top of the armature shaft,use a little grease to hold it in place. put the armature into the res. then the motor frame , then lower the cap down onto the motor.get the brushes started on armature leaving enough room to pull out the wires. once the wires are removed you can bolt it together. keep the seals/o-rings in place while doing this. hope this helps you out

      Re: force tilt pump diagram

      Hey thanks John, how about the pump assembly, I had to disassemble to get all of the old nasty oil out and not sure if i have the pressure springs in the right place. If it wont kill it if I do it wrong I guess i can just trial and error it. Any help would be great Thanks again

          jboss, as far as the pump itself ,have never disassembled one . always replaced as a unit. but i know there are some people who have trial & errored it.but your best bet is to get another pump assy ,i am still looking for one for you. cause if you do get this one put back together ,won't the lines still leak at the fittings?

            Re: force tilt pump diagram

            Yea I guess thats true, I was going to get it all back together and see if the lines still leak since i took the completly off and tried to clean the threads. I am going to send you the money for the res. and lines if you still want to sell them. You said $25 right? As soon as I hear from you, its on its way Thanks
