    It is time to replace the cables on the isamark pump. I had to drill out the set screws and cut the cable to remove it from the pump. How does the new fitting get to the control side? All I have is the small hole for the wire to go through.

    Thanks Twinman, but I already have this booklet in a binder. It does not explain how to get the cable out of the pump unit. After I drilled out the set screw, I was able to pull the cable out, but the end that slides over the lever would not come out. I cut the cable inside the pump and the rest of the cable housing came out. How does the new cable go in?

    I got it. I kept looking at the end of the cable that went into the housing, and realized that when I drilled out the set screw, I drilled into the cable ends. When I twisted and yanked the cables end out, I actally cracked part of the ends off and they were lodged in the housing. I took a big punch and hit the part in the pump and they fell out. Thats makes sense as I knew the cable ends should slide through the pump housing and attach to the lever.

    Make sure you seal the area where the cable enters the pump housing after you install the new cables!
