Of electric motors and shear pins...

 

A reference post on the misbehaving electric motor for the Tin Can:

Although there is a screw head on the spindle, the screw does not turn.
We removed the prop by turning the nut with vice grips.

Under the prop - twisted fish line and...

... a broken shear pin.
The shear pin is designed to break before the prop or engine when fouled or hitting bottom.

Bob is located between the Hideaway and Tall Timbers. A good guy and a good resource for any engine problems.
He fabricated more pins for us, which seem to work fine.
Extra shear pins are located here.
That is all.
