Changing the Power Grear hydraulic Leveler Motor

I have a 2005 National Seabreeze and the Powergear hyrolic leavers system has a bad electric motor, so I think... It will operate sometime on its own but most of the time it is stuck and if I get the wife to gently tap it with a hammer while I hold down the button inside it will free up sand operate. I think that it has some corrosion inside and needs to be removed and rebuilt. Does anyone know how difficult it is to remove? It looks straightforward but I fear it might be stuck hard to remove. Any watchouts or advice?
John

Hi John, Without being there it's hard to tell but you might want to check the solenoid and conections before pulling the motor. If you have a multi-meter set it to DC voltage and check the voltage at both of the large studs with the solenoid activated. If there is more than say 1/2 volt difference replace the solenoid

Good advice from Shadow but since you mentioned the hammer, I feel certain the motor is the problem. Most of the ones I've done have the 2 long thru bolts holding the motor to the hydraulic pump. The plate that comes on the pump end oof the new motor may/may not be used. Watch the back end of the motor, not to let the endplate fall from the armature as this will dislodge your brushes.

Wishing you the best and BE SURE to disconnect the 12v power before proceeding.

Thanks Rgreen45. I am going to try to remove the motor and take it to a rebuilder (way less expensive than new) Question. After removing the 2 long blots, will the motor simply lift up off the pump or does it need to be pryed off, Are there any cautions about the armature end?.

Thanks for you advice.

John

All I've seen just pull away once you take out the 2 long bolts. There's a slotted drive on the pump end of the motor that fits in a slot on the pump. Just remove it gently and don't let it fall apart. You may need to tap with a hammer to loosen it once you get the bolts out. Hold the back endcap in place while you do though.
