    Question SC help back bolt head stripped

    I was taking my SC off to replace the ceramic washers and when i got to to the bolt on the back of the SC that goes through the block into the SC the 1/4" box wrench stripped the hell out of the bolt. I need to know if the block part that the bolt goes through is threaded or not. If not i can just cut the head off the bolt and slid the SC off but if not im in need of some serious help. Any ideas?

    it is not threaded just be careful. Might try some needle nose vise grips then change the bold for standard head bolts instead of the TORX ones

    Good luck removing it. The same thing happened to me and I had to cut it off and buy a new housing for the half that I cut off. I also replaced the bolts with hex bolts and washers. It makes removing the SC a 100 times easier to remove.

    Any hardware store with a good selection of bolts should have SS metric bolts. If you are only running in fresh water, you can get away with regular steel metric bolts with no real issues. If not, the 07 S/C bolts have an 8mm hex head on them, and should be a direct replacement for earlier years, so you can get them at your dealer, but probably at twice what they should cost.

    Its an M6-25 bolt

    Cut it off and use visegrips and a little heat on the housing

    I got mine here http://www.boltdepot.com/Default.aspx but you may be able to find them at your local hardware store.
