Fisher Minute Mount II motor rebuild?

    I'm looking to rebuild my Minute Mount II Hydraulic Motor MUE-6301. It was new in 2009. I cannot find what I thought would be a simple repair part. The armature, brushes and bearing is fine. The motor cap failed due to corrosion allowing water to enter near the "+" and "-" studs that slide into the cap. Does anyone know where I could buy just the motor cap for what appears to be a Prestolite 12V motor?

    I am not sure, however i put a new motor on my older mm2 last week and it is SAM replacement motor for 150$ if you are looking for a new motor.

    Guess I'm too much of a Yankee to throw away a perfectly good motor that just needs a new cover. Thanks

    I tried a local rebuild shop. They typically have parts for everything. In this case they said they don't rebuild them as they can sell a replacement motor for $150.

    75 or 150....easy pay that for peace of mind for a new unit.

    For me, that's a easy choice.
