I just bought a power pole now I need the bracket but unsure of which one to get.
My raise/lower bolts sit very close to the end of the jackplate.
I can’t even tell the brand of my jackplate, it has Springfield on it. Never heard of a brand that makes jackplates from them.
What are my options?

looks like a rite-hite. if so be prepared to be told to replace it by most in the know. supposedly they had lots of problems out of them which is why they are no longer produced.

Give powerpole a call and they will get you fixed up. Worse case, you might have to get one that goes between the jackplate and the transom

If that's a Rite Hite, it's not if it'll fail, its when it'll fail. VERY DANGEROUS!!! Bad news.!!! I wouldn't mount anything to it. Sorry about that. Get yourself a good jackplate & then mount powerpole.
