Question about Simrad Rpu160 Reversible Pump 21118237
Autopilot failed. Keep getting rudder response failure. In standby, rudder indicator works. Steering with manual hydraulic wheel works fine. RPU motor was replaced 12 months ago due to a failure. Is there any way to test the RPU unit before purchasing a new one. I have removed the old unit from the boat. If I hook 12 volts up the the motor leads, will it prove it anything?
Yes, hook it to 12V it runs, reverse wires it runs opposite
it will spit oil, watch out!
shoulda coulda left it in place and tested with jumper cables or battery
if pump is bad
1 find out why your boat eats pumps
2. call me, i have it in stock for less than you paid before (most likely)
3. you can replace the electric motor without disturbing the hydraulics!!!
