If it is pump motor, then suitable brushes can be stripped in.
Tohatsu didn't sell trim repair kits (brushes, 'o' ring) for my 2006 engine which I was genuinely surprised at and wanted £120 for a new unit. Aye that will be right.
Used Honda CBR 125 brushes, new springs (120B) from Meccano, and topped up hydraulic fluid with Mobil 220ATF.
If it is motor, then open it up and take a look. They're fairly basic inside.
