Trim Motor Seized - Yamaha F50A

Looks like the trim motor on my Yamaha F50 is seized.

A new OEM one is 337 EX VAT
Non OEM half that?
Get it refurbed?

P/N:62Y-43880-02-00

Any thoughts.

Thanks,

Will

Have you opened it up? Trim motors are relatively simple pieces of kit. I rebuilt my Tohatsu one with carbon brushes for a motorcycle and springs from Hornby train set.

Have you ruled out the solenoids just in case?

Post some pictures so we can see.

Yes, thankfully I had my electrician friend with me so he opened it up and inspected.

Will take some pictures and report back!

Definitely look to refurbish first. Suspect it's just worn carbon brushes. Also check the springs as their job is critical in keeping sufficient pressure on the brushes. Any corrosion on the springs, then look to replace too. If the 'o' ring gasket on the motor body is broken or pinched, then you'll need to replace that or you'll get water ingress.
