    Need help shaft and motor

    I bought the m41 a few weeks ago. The second time out my wife smashed it into a houseboat. Wrecked the front end. Ive repaired it however, the boat is running very hot the water intake does not seem to be getting water to the coolers Checked the intake on the rudder not blocked, Motor turns but the drive shaft slips, Ive tighten it up as much as possible, still slips. Any advies, other than not letting my wife use the boat?

    Sounds like you need a new motor coupler. I run the aeromarine coupler and it will never slip on the motor or the flex cable. Start by blowing in the line at the rudder to see if anything is blocked in the boat. If it blows out the outlet without any leaks then it is your rudder.

    If you google how to solder rc boat flex cable ends you might be able to repair the cable for more grip.
