i think youll find you have to remove the whole mechanics .
as for removeing the motor not sure as im not keen on jetcat but i think youl find that you will have to send it off to jetcat for any servicing and repair. best to check first so you dont accidently invalidate any warrenty

Morning Mcfast

Remove PHT3 box cover, it is a snap on and off. Disconnect the temp probe and the starter motor power plug from the sensor box. Remove the sensor box,3 bolts.

You now have access to the two bolts on both sides of the starter motor mount.

cheers

I have had my motor out of the mechanics a couple of times to change the rubber washer. Remove it just as Don has described but make sure you line up the sliding clutch shaft with the turbine drive shaft properly when you replace it back in the mechanics.

Oh **** ! this is going to be expensive?

mcfast, follow DD advice, one other thing is to be carefull of the temperature probe, it can become very fragile, especially if you start to bend it.
dazzaster , Read your post, as usual, talking through your butt end again, why not post on some thing you know about, instead of ill informed advice

MR ROB
try reading my post i didnt say i knew what i was talking about i said i think.
so before you try knocking someone for helping think about it ,mind you if you did know what you where talking about yourself you would of posted the advice when i did as you where watching the topic at the time ,instead of waiting several hours trying to think of something inteligent to say.

yep if you want to know about jetcat then peter rob is your man, he will even sell you a nice running turbine anytime and help you out with it. oh wait sorry i must be posting ill informed advice again.

The o-rings are 6mm ID by 3mm thick and 90 durometer. JetCat USA has them for about $5 each.

"O" Rings
mcfast, Make sure you get the correct starter rings from JetCat, there are 2 different grades, one for PHT3, the other for SPH5, I tried sourceing "O" rings, they only lasted a few starts
If anyone knows the correct grade, then please share the info, they are a pretty expensive item, for something so small

Yes, they expensive but not so expensive as the postage? I bought two last year and they arrived in an A4 size padded envelope and I was charged £5.99 postage by Jetline !!!!!!

Oh **** ! this is going to be expensive?

Peter, I did not know this. Thanks for that info! So in that case, mcfast, the 6x3mm 90 duro ring may not be the right one after all!

Yeah
the SPH5 has a rough edge on the starter, which is why if you use the softer O ring which is meant for the PHT3 it will wear out after 3 or 4 starts cos the rough rim on the SPH5 will just tear into the soft rubber.. if you are careful you can turn O ring over and use the other side, but i have found i destroy the O ring getting it out of that rim it fits into, so i end up putting a new one in, but PeterRob manages to do it!!! he has too much time!

Motors and Rotors in UK had 4 of the harder ones in stock, at £5.99 each, i decided to buy all 4 of them, they are a lot harder than the PHT3 ones,and i have had my turbine for nearly a year now and i have not had to replace the O ring on the SPH5.

MATT

All The Best
