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.

Motorguide Trolling motor has low thrust in all five speeds


I have a 4 speed with 48 lbs of thrust. On mine, 1 through 3 will move me out pretty well, however, 4th is similar to an overdrive gear in a car or truck and is meant more for maintaining a speed with less draw on the amps.

I certainly wouldn't want to take off with it. I suspect it is the same with your 5 speed. The boat needs to be up to speed and then those two gears will maintain it, with 5th being optimal as far as low draw in amperage.
