I found a guy selling a 41 lb thrust Minn Kota electric motor. Says it uses 12volt AS WELL AS 24volt systems. Is this true?? I would guess he knows what he is talkin about considering it is his motor, but, how old could this thing be because I cant find any info online regarding it. Any of you gents know of or have experience with one like this??
I dont have a model number.... I just never heard of a 41 lb motor. 36lbs or 50lbs yes....I guess it's safe to assume that it's a fairly old motor??
I have a motorguide 12v 54 lb bowmount foot control and a 35lb hand control if your interested B-mail me for info. Keith
I seen the same motor on craigslist.He said it's a minn kota 99
Talked him into letting me have it for $20. Not bad....pretty old though. Got it home and cleaned it up....was wondering if it's possible to clean the internal components as well. Maybe give em a little lube or something, clean the corrosion that I'm sure is there. Anybody ever tried opening up the lower unit on an electric motor??
Dont open the bottom if nothing is wrong. You must replace all the seals and orings. There are various electronic protectant sprays you can use on controls switches under the cover foot pedals etc.
