Save yourself some $$$$ just pull it apart to get to the shaft (by parts 65-84 in the diagram) & trim it 8" with a hacksaw. Re-drill the hole at the top, shorten the power wires under the head cap end accordingly & put it back together.

Part # 26 in the diagram here:

Looking @ this youtube video there are already spade connectors under the cap of the head - @25 second mark - makes life really easy.

i wonder if i did that if it would effect the mount geometry. in other words,is the mount the same for a 36in shaft and a 42in shaft/

the mount is the same

it would cost Minn Kota too much to use different mounts

I cut a few down in my time, easy to do works fine

You can see for yourself in the link to the parts supplier's website that both shaft length options are listed as separate parts but there is only one mounting option.
