    R&D Intake grate

    So I was out today and was playing around next thing you know I suck up a ski rope. Luckily no damge was done I noticed it right when I went on top and killed it, but being at the end of the day I just took it home and removed it and all was good but

    While I was at it I was going to put on my new R&D I got from Art a couple weeks back but I run into a problem trying to get it off. Any socket I use does not sit al the way on the head of the bolt as it is recessed in a bit. Now inside the hull the other side I cant see but it fills round and has some sort of notch or something but it spins as I spin the head of the bolt when I can.

    Is there a special tool or socket or a secret to removeing the intake grate?


    Thanks,
    Ron

    Ron, you just need a thin wall socket to get at the bolt out at the intake grate..

    Thanks for the replies. Mine is a 12mm but i just cant get enough grip to get it off. Ill run to local hardware store and grab a set of thin wall sockets.
