Can't offer a solution but did want to mention that WD-40 is a penetrating lubricant, not a lubricant.  Try it yourself; just spray a film on anything that is around room temperature, you'll find that it evaporates fairly soon- within a day or two. It's great for loosening stubborn nuts and bolts but not for the long run.

I nned a motorguide 46 lb. thrust electric foot controlled trolling motor manual


Go to http://www.boats.net. Let me ask you a question, is it 5 speed? And if so have you lost some or all speeds but 5?. I so, them you need to take the lower unit apart and you will find solder laying in the bottom. You will see that the speed control coil wires at one if the terminals on the brush board has no solder. Clean it up along with the wires so that you see copper and re-solder. This is due to poor quality control on soldering at the manufacturer. When you re-assemble tighten the bolt 45-50 in-lbs only. No more.

I have a Motor Guide Brute 767, 67 lb thrust 24 volt trolling motor. It will only run at about half speed even with new batteries.


I believe you may have a bad low voltage circuit board problem. I do not think they make the board any longer but you may be able to convert it to work by bypassing the circuit board. I am working on one now.

Is there any way to modify in order to get more power/thrust out of a mk 30lb other than stock? or can you take a moto guide 80 lb., bow mount foot control, shaft and motor and combine it with transom...


Hey Chris,, you are starting a project (or wanting to) that is going to be problematic... It will be easier to go buy a new trolling motor with the money you are going to spend attempting this conversion... the newer trolling motors are so much more efficient...
