Mariner trim tilt motor brushes

Hi all,
The brushes have worn out on my mariner 100 outboard 4cyl 2 stroke trim tilt motor (part number 822628)

Anyone know where I can get replacements?

Of course you can't buy the brushes separately from mariner/quicksilver, and the 'brush card' from quicksilver (part 811625) I can't locate anywhere - no longer available- and is rrp 60!

Carbonbrush.co.uk are 'having a look' to see if they can get any but will be at least 2 weeks. Anyone got one of these motors 2nd hand for sale? The motor shaft bearing is also on its way out.

THe alternative is a whole new motor and wiring loom (succession part for this motor is 2 wire not 3 so comes with all new loom and relays) for some ungodly amount of cAsh.

Many thanks

Trim motors can be rebuilt with other brushes. Tohatsu don't list the brushes for the M60C and wanted 120 for a new motor. I bought brushes for a Honda CBR125 motorbike and replacement springs from Mecanno (long story).

More details here: Twatsoo 60hp won't fire up

ive rebuilt 2 mariner starters using lucas brushes like these LASX40-412p LUCAS M35J STARTER MOTOR BRUSH SET WITH POST INSULATOR | eBay i did however have to re-shape them slightly with the dremmel in order to get them to fit. all work perfectly and only cost a few quid instead of a new starter!

oh, and be sure to draw a line all the way down the side, marking the base, the body and the top, as if you reassemble the motor wrong it will run backwards!

Strange that carbonbrush.co.uk are "looking" - i got new custom made brushes from them (as "solent tools" I believe) a couple of years back for my Mariner tilt motor - i sent them an old brush and they just made replacements as a custom job ( but still reasonably priced)

thanks all for replies. To be fair on carbonbrush.co.uk I am just an impatient person with the weather being fantastic at the moment, I'm sure (and I hope) they will be able to find something suitable.

festinghouse - I get the principle - find something the same size if not bigger and whittle it down. It's the trim/tilt motor not the starter but I'll give this a shot if carbonbrush can't find anything.

What I'm now stuck on is obtaining the retaining/lock washer in the motor cap that holds the shaft bearing in place. It has disintegrated and was causing the horrible grating noises that made me take the motor apart in the first place. It's a 1 inch outer diameter, 3/4 inch internal diameter 'retaining washer' / 'Starlock washer' / 'locking washer' or whatever it is called. No luck at RS / Farnell / fleabay, not listed as a part or even drawn on the Mariner parts listings.... this motor will not get the better of me for the sake of a few pennies!

CarbonBrush.co.uk - Solent Tools, have today sent the brushes!
For future reference for anyone else
Mariner 100HP 4cyl 2 stroke
trim tilt motor brushes for motor 811628

part CROMA90 adjusted to 6.3 x 9.6 x 14 mm

Now to find this pesky retaining ring. I've made a schoolboy error in measuring the retaining washer. it is actually 1" OD and 1/2" ID.
