785 pro installing wear ring question
I was able to get the old wear ring off, and I noticed the thru hull bolts are different on the 97 model replacement that I am going back on with,
The one I just removed had the bolts connected to the wear ring, just bolt and go,
The one I am going back in with has the stud type bolts with a nut on each end and a hex piece in the middle, thus using 8 nuts instead of just 4,
Can I just take some longer regular S/S bolts and bolt them in from the outside?
It just seems easier and less wrenching,
open to all ideas?

yes ,but I would use the stud setup you already have it ,just prebolt the outer nuts to it or the inner ones

The stud setup allows you to remove it without affecting the alignment.
