I can supply them. Or you can make them, or have any auto electricians place make them for you. If you want me to supply, send me a private message with model of pump, and serial number. The rpu Simrad units have used several different motors, the serial number is so we can determine which one you have.

Re: Simrad pilot carbon brushes

Just now, I am ordering brushes for a Raymarine autopilot, for a visiting circumnavigating French yacht. After a telephone conversion, they only wanted a drawing with dimensions. They were confident they could meet any requirements.
I don't know where you are, but this is an Australian company:
Morgan Industrial Carbon - A world leader in carbon technology
I am sure that there are similar companies around the world, and of course if the carbon bit is too big, filing down to size is always an option.
Wishing you all sunny skies above, clear water below, gentle winds behind and a safe port ahead,
and when coming this way check,_Australia
