Trey,

Have you tried decal remover? It comes in a spray can. Automotive shops sell it. It crystallizes the adhesive so it flakes off.

But I did get the old numbers off the other side of the boat.

One step forward, two steps back.

If the prop has a rubber hub designed to protect the engine when the prop strikes a solid object
stainless steel- called a drive pin.
If the prop doesn't offer the motor protection,---- then a shear pin made of brass- called a shear pin.

You of course could use brass with a rubber hub and be more protected.

I've read of many that use brass rod from a hardware store..

I've seen stainless (my newer Merc), or brass. For as little as they cost, and however infrequently you break one, I'd be inclined to just buy a couple of the correct OEM ones. The ones in my brush hog are mild steel. I have to make a supply of those myself since my wife breaks 2 every time she uses it. ;)

Positive brushes are shorted out to the case.

Not sure if it's worth the effort to de-solder all the connections to be able to pull the positive parts out to be able to replace the insulation between the case and the positive side.

I think I would take it back apart :biggrin:

The "pop" may have left tracks that will show you what happened.
Never doubt the wisdom of dumb question’s.
