  • Motor gear issue

    lovely day here in Oz today. Scorpion out and about, disappearing and surfacing when ordered. Still learning to operate so she doesn't look like a dolphin. Brought her in for a check up and notice a noise that sounded like something about to break. Turns out she seemed to be missing a few teeth on the pinion??? gear.
    Where would I be able to get one of these in Australia? Might need a couple. The lake is a little low and had a bit more weed in it today.
    I will try to clean the teeth on this one although I don't think there is enough meat on the rest of the gear.

      E-mail me your mailing address and I'll slip two in an envelop right away. Wow. This is the first in over 20 years of making these things. Any thoughts on what caused the loss of teeth?

        Too much weed in the lake. Had the fuses blow on the skimmers as well. Not a good day for the stokers.
