Riva top loader repairable?
Been having issues keeping the inserts in the pump shoe. One pulled out and then the middle intake bolt pulled through. I tried the girdle fix but that came out and is at the bottom of the lake. Is the middle bolt hole repairable or should I get a new one? I'm going to epoxy in the one insert that pulled out bu not sure what to do with the middle one...

Why risk it when you can get them for 55-75 in good used condition

There was a post a few years ago about welding up that center hole and then drilling the hole. Also you could drill and tap the hole in the rideplate hole to a larger size. I believe it was Snoman that posted the mod, but could be wrong there.
ETA- Here is a link where some were repairing the Riva grate.

Contact Riva. If the intake grate isn't modified. I don't see why they wouldn't stand by their product and swapnit for you. I was able to swap mine once for the same reason.
