Customer Question
I have a question...

I have a question about an Shakespeare Glider 55 model # 80038 electric trolling motor, know anything about this motor or can you direct me to a site that does

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Just acquired the motor today. took it all apart and as I am an electrician I see no visual evidence of burnt out parts, had the motor right out of the leg and still couldn't see a problem. tested and was getting voltage at the brushes. could hear the relay working as I rotated the control dial but nothing

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes if I can properly diagnose the problem and the parts aren't tooo expensive

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No just need to know how to properly test to get to the problem

From what I can tell the motor looks to be built off a Minn Kota design. Are there also 3 colored wires that go down to the brush card on this unit?
