    stuck pump bolt

    on the back of the gp looking forward

    i found one of the four bolts that holds the wear ring housing onto the hull backed out roughly two to three i took off the ride plate and found that the bolt seems to be siezed, and i am not sure why. I cannot tighten it or loosen to take it out........i probably could but i am too scared to strip what is on the other side since the bolt is not visable from the inside of the hull. any suggestions? should i leave it or try to fix it?

    I was only using a 3/8" ratchet with a 8" extension what can this bolt/hull take for torque without stripping the nut in the hull?

    here is a pic attached

    you can try some heat (don't set ski on fire please) what may happen is insert inside could start to turn ,you'll have to grap with vice grips and back out from there
