New project. I have a Motorguide 24 volt trolling motor. It works with a remote control for motor on off and speed. It also turns 360 degrees. The project is to use that mechanism to drive a wheel on a three wheeled cart and use the remote to control it. It needs to carry 400lbs over all three wheels so not full 400 down on it. But there will be more downward force than running a trolling motor in water. So I was thinking of using a 1.25 solid shaft to the wheel. Then a thrust bearing between the motorguide housing and top of the fork mechanism. Thought is the bearing will let the shaft turn easier with the downward force. Is this the best type of bearing? Thoughts?
