Your armature has a dead spot. Either replace it or get a generator rebuild shop to test it on a growler, and fix the open winding. You can do it if you ohm between ajacent brush blocks and re-stake the wire clamp on any that ohm over 1 ohm. You MIGHT only have a dirty commutator which can be solved with crocus cloth.

SOURCE: Minn Kota lower unit leaking.

Man, you have a job ahead of you. First, if the unbreakable shaft is cracked or broken, you will have to replace it, for it will leak into the motor too. If your unit has the sonar sensor in the front and it has had water in it, the unit can corrode severely and need a lot of parts besides seals. The wiring to the sonar runs in a protective shield bonded to the magnet housing and one of the long screws holds it in there. Remember to take the wiring to the sonar out AFTER you remove the big motor feed wires, and replace it BEFORE you reinstall the red and black cables. Some grease seems to ensure the o'rings slide on metal parts during reassembly rather than tear. It's quite a job.

    I have a Minn Kota Fortrex 80" Shaft 24volt motor. The shaft appears to have a lot of play where it connects to the top of the aluminium bracket at the head. How can I repair this?

    what do you consider a lot of play
    1/2 inch, 1", .02",040" or what
    talk with a service agent for the equipment to get the exact amount of end play permissible or down load a workshop manual for the equipment

    What is amp. draw of minn kota 40pd? thanks

    Digital Maximizer™
    Digital Maximizer™. Up to five times longer run time on a single charge.
    Conventional speed coil technology wastes energy by delivering a constant, steady flow of power to the motor regardless of the speed setting resulting in wasted energy.

    Pioneered in 1985, Minn Kotas innovative Maximizer™ technology delivers the precise amount of power needed at any setting, along with variable speed control. Now, our advanced, digital microprocessing optimizes draw to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat. Get up to five times longer run time on a single charge.

    Would think you would have to ask direct, but standard practice is to run your Minn Kota from a separate battery anyway, so the draw is pretty irrelevant to main engine starting.

    your manual is here and states it has a battery level meter.

    How do i release 101 fortrex motor from mounting bracket

    There is a pin that goes through the shaft, a small circle clip that holds it in place. Remove the clip and pull out the pin. This may require a hammer and drift as they tend to corrode in the aluminum. don't forget to pull the rope and release the catch.

    Hi, with your spark plugs in you are turning the engine over against compression, thats why its harder to turn. The binding noise could be your piston rings, buts its difficult to say without further information. Sorry

    Ran aground on lake,now stuck on high speed,can't lower speed

    My Minn Kota 55 powerdrive had the same problem except mine occurred while it was trailered in the yard. High speed only, everything else worked great. From what I could research the control module is a frequent problem. Took a chance and purchased a new control module and this cured the problem. Maybe this happening and running aground was just concidental.
