Default Broken trim pump

I broke the trim pump some time ago on my boat. The pump itself is fine, it is the reservoir on the bottom that broke off. The plastic tabs that hold the tank in place broke on one side. I believe it is a bennet trim system on the boat from factory , but am not sure. The boat is a 2001 PowerQuest 237, and the tim case red with a white reservoir under it. After replacing the case ( I hope I can get it alone) I am planning on supporting the reservoir bottom so this will not happen again. Any ideas on where to get just the case? Or does anyone on this plethora of knowledge place we all call "home" have one around that I can buy? HELP!

Sounds like a Bennett Pump to me. See this thread to contact MJ Thomas at Bennett and verify. Bennett products have a 5 year warranty, and they are the BEST in Customer Service.

After looking... It looks like I dont have bennet tabe but insta-trim tabs. Looking on the page I have the red motor cover. Anyone know how long the warranty is on them? All I need is the cover itself... Last time I looked the tabs worked, its just that there is no oil to move them anymore.

I think that Insta-trim and Bennett are the same people. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I emailed Insta-trim and asked a question to see if the housing was a standard part or if they needed the model of the tabs. I got a responce in one and a half hours. Not bad I think. Found out its just a standard part. availible for 27.95. Ahh time to order some parts, only bad thing is.. C.O.D. only.
