you need to change your cable on the shaft every time you change your coils or just unplug and plug in the other coil on a
gpx 5000 foot end of shaft? cheers

Gday

The cables and pins of the nuggetfinder, coiltek, minelab coils are all the same for coils "made" for all models of minelab pi machines from the sd2000-2100-2200-gp3000-extreme-3500-gpx4000-45000-5000.

There are similar looking coils from earlier model minelab machines, vlf type ones, but they have different pins in the plugs and wont fit, trying to make them work on a pi machine will damage it.

Removing the coil fom the machine is the same for every coil, unscrew and unplug the end of the cable from the control box at the top of the cable, unwind the cable from around the shaft, remove the plastic wing nut and bolt that goes through the lower end (coil end) of the shaft, remove the coil complete with its cable from the shaft.

Re fitting another coil is exactly the same but done in reverse, the cable needs to be securely wrapped around the shaft trying not to leave any sagging cable, but at the same time not being too tight, the coil has to be able to move freely, "this is all explained in your user manual for the machine".

To save time changing coils, buy a spare shaft, mount your spare coil on the shaft so that all you have to do is unscrew and unplug the lead from the control box at the top, and then remove the lower shaft from the top shaft, then re fit your other coil back on the same way.

cheers
