Apache Motors have three 5/16"-18 x 1/2" deep mounting holes on the output shaft side of the gearbox. All three mounting holes should be used when mounting the direct drive motor unit to the bulkhead.
The gearbox has a 3/4" diameter output shaft with a 5/16" diameter through the hole. To minimize stress on your motor and gearbox, avoid the use of oscillating loads and attach tubes as straight as possible to the output shaft.
Complete a thorough check and installation of all wiring while all cables are unattached. Where necessary, securely fasten all wiring to the adjacent structure using cable ties

Due to electric motor efficiency and electric power available from your vehicle's battery or alternator, these units are rated for intermittent use. Use the Apache Motor for short periods of time only, allowing it to cool between uses. If your motor becomes too hot to touch, stop operation and allow it to cool.
