Convertible hydraulic oil pump repair

 

11 March 2008

 

During some late summer cruises I noticed a reluctancy and unreliability of my convertible hydraluic oil pump. Had sometimes to give it a light tap with a screwdriver or similar to get it to operate.  I decided to disassemble it and see what the reason could be. Suspected the collector brushes to be faulty. See the photos of the operation below.
