I have an all terrain 70 that would not work intermittently. I disassembled the motor and discovered that the brushes wer hung in the brush housing. The housing is clean and the brushes are in great shape. It appeared that the geometry of the brush spring is just right to make it hang at that prticular position. I freed the spring and could not recreate the problem. Reassembled with new gaskets and seals and all is good.

    I had the same problem tonight. I wound up getting it off by appling a diagional pressure to the prop. That held the shaft screw. Then my Dad turned the wing nut with a neddle nose pliars conter clockwise and it came right off.

    My problem and probably yours too is once inside there is a pin holding the prop to the shaft that was broken. I don't know how to get the new pin back in since it is inside the prop with no access from the outside.

    Hello bombiegano. I suggest you check you wiring terminals. They could be corroded. If you have good connections next would be fising line, string or weeds jammed in rotor of your prop motor. If these suggestions fail please inform me of Mgrf.,model & serial# & we can repair the unit. Good Fishing.

    Minn Kota Model 35 24lb thrust transom trolling motor not getting power


    It might help to view drawings at http://secure.northlandmarine.com/MinnkotaTillerSteering.html.
    The spring loaded items are brushes. They carry current to the rotor/shaft/impeller causing them to spin. I have two Model 35s. One failed after a couple hours of use. The other was given to me because it did not work. Both suffer from water getting into the motor and causing corrosion and sticking brushes. Someone on another site commented that this was a common problem for Minn Kota.
