Endura Motor Anatomy

Lever Lock Transom Mount Features

  • Adjustable Depth Collar - This is used to adjust the height of the motor vertically. Loosen the steering tension knob and depth collar knob until the shaft slides freely and then raise or lower the motor to the desired depth.
  • Steering Tension Knob - Adjusting the Steering Tension knob provides enough tension for the motor to turn freely, or you can tighten the knob to place the motor in a preset position.
  • Tilt Lever - While pressing down and holding the Tilt Lever you can grab the control head and tilt the motor forward or backward to the desired position.
  • Transom Clamp Screws - The bracket sits over the top of the boat transom. By tightening the clamp screws (by hand) it will clamp to the transom and hold the motor to the boat. Loosen clamp screws to remove the motor from the transom.

Hand Control Features

  • Telescopic Handle - 6” telescoping tiller handle.
  • Steering - With a hand-controlled model to steer the motor left or right, you will just push the handle to the left or right to change the position of the lower unit.
  • Controlling Speed - This motor offers variable forward and reverse speeds. The speed control may be operated in either direction, forward or reverse. Turn the handle counterclockwise from (OFF) to increase reverse speed and clockwise from (OFF) to increase forward speed. Speed decreases as you approach Off.

Handle Installation

Once the handle is installed, the installation is permanent.

  1. Remove the Wire Clip from the Ball Detent located on the Inner Handle.
  2. Install the Outer Handle over the Inner Handle. Position the handles so the Ball Detent and OFF are aligned.
  3. Push the Outer Handle into the control box until handle clicks into place. The handle is held in place with locking fingers, so some force may be required to lock the handles together.
  4. Once the handle is locked into the control box, it can be rotated and extended for normal use.
  5. Once the handle is installed, the assembly is permanent. Do not attempt to remove the handle.

Motor Installation

  1. Find a transom area of the boat that is free from obstructions.
  2. Open the Transom Clamp Screws on the bracket enough so that it will fit over the top of the boat transom.
  3. Place the Lever Lock Mounting Bracket over the top of the boat transom so that the bracket is resting on top of the transom.

  4. Verify that there are no obstacles that the control box, handle, or prop might hit while in use that would restrict steering or cause damage to the motor.
  5. Tighten down the Transom Clamp Screws to the transom by hand only. Do not use any tools to tighten the clamp screws as this may damage the bracket or your boat.

  6. We recommend the tilt angle of the motor to be adjusted so that the motor shaft is perpendicular to the water surface when the motor is in use.

  7. For transport, always tilt the motor into the boat, such that the motor and prop assembly are completely out of the water and the motor is positioned up close to the Lever Lock Mounting Bracket.

Controlling Speed with the Tiller

These motors are equipped with an extension twist tiller with a telescoping handle, which offers a choice of five forward and three reverse speeds. The speed control may be operated in either direction, forward or reverse. Turn the tiller handle counterclockwise from (OFF) to increase reverse speed and clockwise from (OFF) to increase forward speed. Thrust decreases as you approach (OFF) from either direction.

    1. Ensure that the top of the motor is submerged at least 12 inches to prevent surface water churning or agitation.
    2. Firmly grasp the composite shaft and hold it steady.
    3. Loosen the steering tension knob and the adjustable depth collar until the shaft slides freely.
    4. Raise or lower the motor to your desired depth.
    5. Tighten the adjustable depth collar to secure the motor in place.
