changing shaft on my trolling motor

08 August 2013 - 12:45 AM

broke my carbon fiber shaft the other night it broke in half luckily i had another old motor with carbon shaft. pretty much take out all the guts and magic mark housing across so you put back together right if you flip flop your forward is reverse and reverse is forward speaking from experience here. and start applying heat on the motor part (aluminum) not the shaft heat all the way around then try to unscrew. if no movement apply some more heat. took me 3 tries of heating before coming unscrewed. when unscrewing if starts to get hard again apply more heat if you muscle through it you will probably lose some of the threads of the shaft like i found out on the initial motor which was the unbroken shaft.after learning this the broken shaft come out perfect. so a little jb weld on threads screwed in shaft so far so good. hope this helps somebody

convenient tool kit

found this electrician tool belt at garage sale cheap and pulled one of the pouches off and screwed it to deck and put some common tools in that i use often while fishing. so when reel seat comes loose or light needs adjusting you aint digging for pliers or wrench. if your boat is like mine you have crap everywhere and cant remember where you put anything.

my running light fix

14 March 2013 - 02:12 AM

used to break my running light (the white one) quite often. always forgot to remove it when i got to the fishing hole. removed my light and wires from tube then measured up about ten inches from base and then cut it with hacksaw. found a old trampoline spring that fit perfect on mine. mixed up some JB weld then slid spring on couple inches on one side of tube then did the same to other side. had to splice a few more inches of wire to compensate for spring length. put all back together but it was a little too springy for me so started wrapping spring with electrical tape till i was happy with the movement. hasn't broke yet been using for 6 years.
