    Usually there is a screw on the bottom, that goes up into a threaded insert in the hull. Some of the early hulls I think used a through bolt and nut, but most hulls have the insert.

    You remove the single screw from under the hull, at the front end of the intake grate. Then work it loose from the slot at the back where it fits into the ride plate.

    Be sure to apply Marine grade sealant around both ends of the new grate, to smooth the water flow, and prevent any up-down motion at the ride plate end.

    Before you install the new grate, take a moment to verify that it fits nicely against your hull. Sometimes there are high spots than need to be filed down, so the grate fits nicely.

    There is a lip on the plate that slides under the rideplate. So pull down the front and wiggle forward.

    Hey I had to take my grate of My 95 sl750 to remove a small wood chip from the impeller. What do you reccomend for "marine grade sealant" to use when I put the grate back on?
