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

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

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (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 topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic 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 topic.

5. By starting your own topic, 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 topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic 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 topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic 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 topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

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

  • Power Trim Pump Motor Rebuild?

    1979 V-150

    Trying to hook everything up for the maiden voyage and just got into the power trim/tilt. I believe I have everything wired as per the diagram (hear clicking from up, down, and trailer buttons). I did some troubleshooting following the manual I have and followed the voltage through each point until the manual finally indicated replacing the pump motor.

    Is it possible to have it rebuilt? If so, where can I take it? The local hydraulic place that replaced my hoses, or someplace else? The replacement cost for a new one is $975 for the Eaton Rectangular motor I need !!! That's $1K towards the four stroke I want to eventually put on the boat! ...thinking of giving the leads that feed the motor direct voltage as a final test, or trying to spin the motor and re-test it seeing how I believe the motor has been sitting for some time.

    Thanks,
    Dennis

    You might check with your local auto electric shop. We have one that says if it runs on 12V they can fix it but I've never taken a T&T motor to them.

      Direct voltage to the motor would be a good idea before replacing it. You may also want to disassemble it and see what condition it's in...Anyplace that rebuilds electric motors or starters should be able to do the job..

        Crunch, First disassemble the motor. My '77 PTT motor had a bi-metal overload circuit breaker that got some dirt between the contacts. Motor no workee. Also, make sure you have a good ground on the black wire of the motor. it is common to both up and down windings. Third, ********** and BoatUS have quite a few aftermarket motors for common PTT units. If you have the motor with the one-piece resvoir top, check closely to make sure any replacemnt will fit. I found that some of the replacements were for a different motor, and the armature was too short to reach the pump unit.

          Thanks for the tips guys. I actually took the motor apart to find out the condition. Upon opening, it seemed like quite a bit of water got in there at one time. Everything was completely corroded and the shaft wouldn't turn. I wire brushed it after completely disassembling it and hit all the surfaces with some ultra fine emery. I put it back together and tested it quickly with a cordless drill battery. It actually started to spin!

          I put the whle pump back together and no luck again. I ran out of daylight before I could put direct voltage to it with the pump attached. Either way, I'm almost positive I'm looking at a new motor or rebuild because the inside looked so bad. I'll update the results here.

          Thanks again.

            Thanks Chris, I'll check for some cheaper aftermarkets too. I found one on the net (under $100), that looks like it would do the job. I'd just have to test fit it to my pump below it to make sure. Maybe I'll run over to West Marine and try one that matches that part number and see how it fits first.

            Thanks.

                Rick, I believe the part number for the whole pump is 823653A9, and 92459A4 is listed as the "superceded from" part number. Here is what it looks like:
