When I bought my 1991 tracker 11 years ago there was a MG mount on the boat and a minn Kota Trolling motor on it. The person before me had adapted the MK to the MG mount. Problem being is the
MK motors shaft is smaller than the MG motors shaft. They used PVC pipe of the almost correct dia cut it to about 4 inch long then split it down the center (PVC Pipe) placed it in the collar bracket as a spacer or sleeve on the MG mount put the MK motor in and closed the collor door and tighten it with the knob. It will work but you will not be happy with it. It will not operate smoothly. Just troll the boards here and find some one selling a MG motor There are some out there just selling the motor with out the bracket.I saw a post in the trading post section yesterday he lives north of Fort Worth near Denton 54 lb thrust 12 v MG 100.00 Kirk Armstrong Kiarmstrong@tyco.com phone no. 940 368 1465
I will see if I have any photos of the home made sleeve. either replace the motor with a MG motor or Buy a Minn Kota mount and and use the Minn Kota.
