Default Motorguide Gator Mount II

Gator Mount II - Barely used. Fit's 50" or less shafts. Upgraded my bow mount shaft to 60" so I had to buy the Big Water Gator mount. $50 or best offer. You can email me at [email protected]

While the original Gator Mount has an incredible breakaway feature to protect the shaft and lower unit against collisions, the Gator II offers a spring-return breakaway design for added user convenience. Soft-touch knobs provide breakaway tension adjustments ranging from spring resistance to complete lock-down.

The MotorGuide Gator II Mount features a hinged door for easy motor removal and 3/8? stainless steel pins to keep the motor secure in both lock-and-stow and lock-and-run positions.

Gator II?s column support block has the shaft offset in order to center the weight of the lower unit directly over the mount. This design offers better lower unit support while the motor is in the stowed position.

Completely constructed of extruded aircraft aluminum, Gator II?s new styling greatly compliments the modernistic curves and looks of today?s fishing boats.

The Gator II Mount comes standard on all Tour Edition motors and on certain Competition and Excel MotorGuide motors.

thanks
Not sure. How does the motor turn? Does the shaft spin or is there a shaft inside the shaft. Know what I'm saying?

I'll have to get back to you on this tonight. I'm at work right now and the mount is at home. Expect the info to hit this thread around dinner time tonight.

Sorry, I got hung up.

The hole is 1.5 inches.

Here are some pictures.

You are trying to do the same thing that roadkill was doing. I couldn't tell you. The gator mount will clamp down on the shaft of the motor. That's how the motor stays in the clamp.
