I saw a cut-out diagram somewhere.... If I'm not mistaken, its an electrical motor immersed in gasoline, isn't it?

The part about "not being expensive to buy new"...that's where my "cost vs. labor" decision comes into if we were talking about the throttle body actuator, well yeah, I'd crack it open if I could.

Of course, we've had members resolder OVPs and they go inexpensively new as well...
