Tohatsu M40D2, 2 stroke, 2003 40 hp short shaft w/ tilt and trim. 13 Jul 2020 12:05 #106138

That's a two pole motor. I would attach one, give it 24 hours to set up, then do the other one.
I've used super glue but considered it a temporary hold until I encapsulated them with fiberglass resin.
By 'shock', I meant mechanical shock, such as dropped the motor, struck with hammer, etc.
By careful with the mags, they will break if allowed to 'snap' to the housing. Ease them in.

Did all four magnets come loose? That usually happens when the motor sustains a severe shock.
You'll have two north, two south pole mags, just make sure they are placed back in the same spot.


There were only two magnets each covering about 120° of the perimeter of the motor housing. Both were loose and the housing shows signs of being 'shocked'.

I'm not sure where they were or how they were oriented. I do see where it looks like they were glued to the housing.

PC-7 is another epoxy option that might work. It stays where you put it better than JB Weld.

The flywheel video is helpful too.


I won't be going that route unless I could find it in small amounts. One site I looked at had it for $975. for a roll 36 ft. long x a couple of inches wide. I also read where superglue worked well.

Noted and thanks for the tips fellows.

Terry do you know if the polarity of the magnets determine their correct orientation in the housing? I should have marked them when removed but didn't. It would suck to do a nice glue job only to find out........... that I should have googled it.
