Hi Fred,


Dumb question: do you have all four allen head bolts removed?


Most recently a post from Loca Lola II that had the same issue as yours:


Patience and lots of lube is the key!

Hello everybody

As anybody ever have a problem with the SM 2000 bow thruster.

the elect. motor seems to be bonded to the "carbon"shaft.

Amel sent us a tool,but still is not moving.Pushed and pulled with  everything i got,still not moving.

I am now to the point of cutting the tube,which i can sleeve from the inside  and hope that it's not the shaft.

does anybody have any kind of experience with particular situation?

thanks all
