Question about Minn Kota Maxxum 70 Freshwater Bow Mount Trolling Motor

1 Answer

My trolling motor maxxum 74# thrust feels like i have broken something in the shaft. It is almost impossible to turn and everything in the head looks fine (cables,gears,etc.). What is in the shaft that could cause this and how do I disassemble the shaft to replace whatever is broken?

Here's a schematic for your motor:

I suspect the the bearings and cups are damaged and binding the tubes. Have a look at key #'s95, 78, 58, 59, 78A, 79. as these are the actual brgs and cups.
Good luck on your repair!

I have a minnkota maxxum 74lb thrust trolling motor. The pedal pin in the foot control keeps sliding out on one side and I have to push this back in to stabilize the pedal. Is there something...


Good day ,
The next time the pin comes out have a close look at it if it has little raised grooves in it that is what is supposed to hold it in.
if so put a little lock tight on the pin and push it back in it should hold again
good luck

I need to replace the bearings in my Maxxum 65lb Thrust trolling motor.


If you never did this before , I strongly advise take it to a local shop....if you don't seal it correctly, you will end up buying a new one for water getting in.... I fix alot of things on my boat but not the trolling motor....your choice....GL

TOOK THE BOLTS OUT OF MINN KOTA AND CANT GET THEM IN. 2 SHORT.


Hi!
Here's a schematic:
Max 74 Bowmount
Make sure the end housing #7has a small mark in it pointed to the bottom (towards the skeg). The bolts can be a pain to line up!
Also make sure the armature is all the way forward it can go....past the brushes is the toughest part to get through and lined up. Keep it up, you'll get it!
Best of luck

You need your serial number of the trolling motor, length of shaft, and thrust poundage.

or you could call Minn Kota direct and give them the same information at 800-227-6433.

Install


Click the link below, You do need to know your serial number thrust of motor and length of shaft as well how far away from trolling motor you will install your battery. This link is on Minn Kota Motors website under FAQ you can discuss with a service rep at Minn Kota please call 800-227-6433, but you will still need the information I asked earlier to come up with the answer.
