Engine tilt motor successfully replaced

I successfully replaced my tilt motor. It failed after 19 yrs. The culprit was not the rust but one of the power leads broke off right as it enters motor.
Some struggle to get it off, but YouTube helped.
eBay replacement motor by romaineelectric was $49 including shipping.
Attachment screws had to be cut off and drilled out. Instead of tapping threads I just used smaller diameter s.s. bolts and nylock nuts since torque needed was only 6#. I used RTV gasket stuff as well on new o-ring.
Works great.

Well done. And that motor info now resides in my file, just in case. :)
