    gti 155 reverse gate nut?

    I got a 2007 gti 155. I'm new to owning a 4 stroker. Been riding them all along though.

    Missing some little stuff here and there on a project I just about finished.

    I am missing the bushing/spacer for where the reverse cable bolts to the reverse bucket bracket. I just ordered the bushing but I plan on using stainless m6 nut and bolt. But I saw the original bolt is made of copper.

    Why did they use copper? Do I need to use a copper nut?

    Never seen a copper bolt on a Seadoo. Use stainless, you'll be fine.

    Yes, there are a few brass nuts on our ski's. The reason is brass does not rust. My 85 year old friend told me of all the polishing he and others had to do in the Navy on ships. Brass was used then and is still used in the marine environment due to this.

    Wrong, the nuts you are referring to are made of brass, not copper. Big difference, copper is generally to soft for fasteners.
