question for you electrical savvy guys. This involves my Minkota MX-65 trolling motor. The switch has gone bad in it and they do not make them anymore. I have spent several months checking everywhere for one and they just are not out there.
I can make it run by just putting in a on / off switch but then it would have no reverse in it. I can buy a Fwd Off Reverse switch from Northern tool. I would like to put a variable speed switch on it but a 110 volt will not work. Not sure if a 12 volt potentiator will work.
If there is another way to do this I would like to hear from some of you electrical experts on this. It is 27 years old and I could buy a new one but don't want to spend that kind of money. Besides with all the snow and cold I can work on this in the warm garage.
