My shaft was too small also sad.gif
I bought a replacement on ebay. Went from a 32 to a 52 for only 40 bucks then all you need is a birdsal motor mount. 160 bucks



Looks good, nice work --Luther, right?

Did you do the wiring and all yourself? It looks like I may go this route, but using a Minn Kota dealer for the actual labor.

There is a Boaters Exchange in Rockledge that has said they can put the 52" shaft on, plus re-wire.
I'm skeered I fug it all up if I try to do the wiring.

You think the birdsall is worth it? I seen some mounts for a third of that cost?

It's very easy to do. Gonna spend way too much paying a dealer. Might as well just get a new one. Cost 55 total with wiring and the shaft. Pm me and I'll walk you through it
