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.
