    Please help w/anderson straight shaft on excalibur II

    How the heck do you take the factory black lower shaft out of the blue uppper shaft. I believe the previous owner may put mine on upside down. My coil keeps calling off. Any help would be appreciated.
    Let's keep it positive

    You should be able to squeeze the two clip buttons and pull it straight out.

    Re: Please help w/anderson straight shaft on excalibur II

    If the Nipple plunger is on the bottom towards the coil then, yeah he put it together wrong.
    I can't in the world see how he could have done that though.
    Stranger things have happened.

    He must not have used it then...right?
    The black plastic piece on the bottom of the shaft will pull out and you can start over.
    Oh, and be careful with the wire from the coil to control box. They do break with too much manipulation (wire fatigue)

    Here's a pic of proper assembly.

    None...
    None what so ever.
    Is the Nipple spring broken??

    It should have memory to pop back out fitting into the female end positioned on the upper shaft.
    Are you turning the lock located on the bottom of the shaft? Clockwise?

    "My coil keeps calling off."

    Is you coil falling off or coil and shaft?

    I have never heard of this friend

    It appears that the lower PLASTIC rod that the coil is attached to is not glued or cemented? into the lower fiber rod.

    Re: Please help w/anderson straight shaft on excalibur II

    Here's the plan. I'm taking it to a minelab dealer in DE on Friday. We'll see what he can do.

    It is the plastic shaft that is falling out of the lower Fiberglas shaft. Also I could not pull the fiberglas shaft out of the anderson blue shaft if my life depended on.

    Thanks for all the responses. I'm sure I'm be in the surf as soon as Friday!

    I had to glue one of mine as it was loose, I used marine epoxy, just be sure you have it in the proper position, once it sets up there is no undoing it.

    It sounds like the previous owner never took the shafts apart to clean them, now it is frozen. You can try a spray penatrating oil and let it set over night, it might release it.

    I always take mine apart after each use and wash it out with fresh water......

    You can also heat the aluminum tube up with a blow dryer to expand the tube then use some good penetrating oil. Get the shaft warm enough and it will expand but the fiberglass inner shaft won't. Get it hot enough that it is hard to handle but not hot enough to burn you.
