    Re: Minn Kota Terrova - Cracked Shaft

    I'd be worried the JB weld that actually get INTO the crack won't be enough to hold it together if you scrape off the excess. The fit on the shaft as it slides is pretty tight, so you probably can't leave much JB weld residue on the outside.

    I'd probably just get the replacement shaft and be done with it.
    Here they come!

    Minn Kota Terrova - Cracked Shaft

    Hey guys. Just wanted to get some advice on a temporary fix to this before resorting to buying a new shaft and tearing the motor apart to fix it.

    Motor runs well. Steering works and thrust works and lift assist works just fine. The only thing is the shaft is cracked about 1/2 of the length down the middle (the cracked portion wouldn’t be under water when the motor is deployed).

    What do you guys recommend to bond this together and seal it up temporarily? I was thinking JB Weld and scrape it down to be flush with the shaft.
