    Default Electric to manual jetovator?

    Have an electric Jetovator set up, is it as easy as just substituting a manual lever for the electric control and maybe a longer cable?

    Thanks in advance.

    Pretty much. You may have to drill out the top hole where the cylinder mounted to accept the cable.

    Sorry, I was thinking Place Diverter

    If its an actual Jet-o-vator it can be done like you decribed it. I've been told they are a little stiff on the upstroke while under way.

    Thanks Josh,
    it is a actual jet-o-vator. I have also heard that with the electric set up, while under way it will strip the gears in the drive on the upstroke, thats why I want to convert it. I have the pump out and apart right now and want to keep an eye out for a lever in the spam section. Have lots more to do to the hull (replacing the stringers) before it's ready to be reinstalled. Thanks everyone for the input!

    I've thought about doing the same or switching to a Place. The Jet-O-vator is much too slow to raise and lower.

    I stripped out one of the gears in mine. That long gear is a bitch to find, and I spent a fortune having one made.
    The only way to keep it from happening again was to let off the throttle, raise the roost, then mash it again. Getting it to go down again didn't seem to be a problem.

    Mine just wont go up all the way. Cable moves freely. Nozzle moves free. New motor. Still wont go up. If I help it just a bit, it goes. Like the motor does not have enough torque.

    Dan We have expirimented with a simple Screw type servo to control the cable on these vs the original windo motor/box design and it worked well I'll dig out some pics if your interested Tom

    have seen the original jet-o-vator use an off the shelp ac delco power windowr motor. the part number is on the gear assemble and can be had thru napa and i assume other auto parts. think i have paid under 30.oo locally for the assembly. was told that the parts were obsolete but found out that this is still an off the shelf item.
