Dan, I've had great luck with JB weld on all kinds of metal to metal bonding. Rough up the surfaces a bit with 180 paper.

Well it's been over a year since the tilt and trim started acting up on my 40 hp Tohatsu. Just today I was trouble shooting and all signs led me to believe that there was a short either in the wiring to the tilt/trim motor, or that the motor had gone bad. I was able to turn the electric motor shaft and it had a real rough feel. Well no wonder! The magnets were rubbing directly on the armature. Actually the motor was measuring .05Ω as per specs but when the two wires leading to the motor were placed across a battery, it drew a heavy load and did not rotate.

When I pulled it apart I found that the magnets had detached from the motor housing. They were glued in place and I am going to glue them back in place. No further damage is apparent, but time will tell.

Any suggestions as to what type of glue I should be seeking? I will be doing some research in the next 24 hours and making a decision shortly.

P.S. I ordered a new motor just now but will still be repairing this one.

Here are a couple of photos:
