    Prop install fun/complications

    So I was tightening up the last bolt on the nozzle after installing the 14/19r in my pump when I heard a nice snap. Sheared the bolt head off. I managed to get the rest of the shaft of the bolt out of the pump housing by turning it with a pair of vise grips. No stripped threads, the bolt is the only casualty.


    Its #31 in the diagram: 31 HEX SCREW M8 X 40, SCOTCH GRIP. Anybody have an extra they want to toss in an envelope for me? I'll gladly send you a couple bucks for your trouble!

    You can find them at a good ACE Hardware Store. Stainless.

    I had to order that tiny little bolt that holds the reverse bucket actuator from a local dealer last week after it stripped... $25! I'm glad I didn't order the nut on the end.

    Cool, I'll take a look there tomorrow.

    I haven't had the best of luck finding stainless metric stuff at local places, so I figured I'd ask here first!


    Right now I'm thankful that I didn't have to get out the drill or ez outs. Phew...
