    I previously owned a Minnkota Powerdrive. It failed.

    I was able to pick up a used 36 lb; 36 inch Minnkota transom mount TM. Both shafts are the same O.D.. It would be nice to have some additional length/height as I am using it at the front of my boat. I've already reversed the head. The 36 lb power is adequate for my use.

    I know that I will have to extend the wiring. Has anyone switched out the shafts with success? What are the mounting arrangements on both the top and bottom of the units? Theaded? Or?????

    thanks, Rich
