Minn Kota Repair Question!!

3 posts in this topic

I have a power drive with sonar, auto etc... I need to put a new housing on because the old one broke when the motor came down. I have the new part however, how do I get the old one off? Do I take the power head off the top and slide the housing up off the shaft or do I take the lower unit and prop drive off the bottom and slide it off that way? Any help would be most appreciated.

Can't you find a local service center? They could probably do the job for you in five minutes. Call MinnKota. Very helpful people.Why take the chance of doing some little thing wrong that buggers up the entire unit.

Yeah, you might save a buck or two, but maybe not. wink.gif

I had that problem before. I downloaded the manual and it shows how to take it apart. You do have to take the top off and slide the shaft down. It's not all that hard, just takes a little time.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
