when you step on the foot pedal its getting power to the lower unit ,but the prop wont turn unless you tap(bang)on the cone where the shaft and lower unit come together.Then when the prop turns (on full power)it moves real slow w/a grind to it!! ITS NOT TO PRETTY GOOD!! What do ya think???
YEp its not a line in the prop thing,its definately coming from inside the lower unit.Im no pro but i think its an electrical thing or a motor thing.Plus when i took the cone off there was a lot of powder substance in the cone,im assuming from a little water getting inside the lower unit and causing electrolysis,but thanx!!
Howdy Tr21, I don't have a clue about your problem. But if your in need of something running by Sat. You are sure welcome to use the spare I have in the garage. It ain't much but it sounds like it'll outrun the one you got now :wink: It's a 34lb 12volt motor guide I live in the east Mesa area...Call me on my mobile if it helps.......602-818-1539 (Gary)
Ditto on te Minn Kota. Two years ago I bought a MG Brute 67. At yesterdays "friendly get together" the latch-down pin snaped in two. Now I have to tie the motor down until I can get a replacement. Seems like a goofy thing to break! :x
