Re: Hanging a new motor on an older boat

Not sure if it’s a straight swap, you probably will need an adapter cable for the wiring harness. Pretty pricey upgrade, make sure you want to keep this boat for a while !!

Re: How best to test smoothness of a spinning reel??

Sounds like the handle screw may be over tightened. Remove it and re-install it. Also, try taking the spool off and see if it spins freely. Check the tightness of the nut that holds the spool body to the reel. Or, it may just need some JetFuel on the gears. I have all Shimano and they spin very free...
