The bottom plastic housing on my trolling motor cracked/broke today causing cables and gears to misalign. Can anyone recommend a reputable repair person I can call to see if it can be repaired? I live in north Fort Worth.

Thanks in advance.

Yes. Bottom half of head. Good to know it may not cost an arm and leg.

Kevine80, can you PM me your cell # so I can text you pics to see if it's similar to what you repaired?

Thanks

there is a metal hoop bracket that supports the gear for the direction pointer
mine broke the mounting lug for this bracket
bought the bottom half of the head -new pointer gear -and new pointer (mine popped off and went in the lake )
it was all 39.00
