    It's more important to be careful when removing the bolts. Many have broken them off and had to drill them out. Some use a little heat on the bolt to loosen the Loctite before loosening; others don't. The Service Manual says to use an impact driver, which I think is a big mistake... Ron

    The one screw in the front with 26 Nm and the 3 others with 11 Nm.
    And use Loctite 271.

    When taking the bolts out. Use a soldering iron and heat each bolt for a bit to loosten the loc tight. Trust me you will thank me for that tip!

    LOL I find it funny that you guys are having an issue taking the bolts out.. I looked under the boat this week and apparently I lost one screw and another was 1/2 out... all by itself.. I need to replace that bolt now I am hoping it's a normal thread I can just pick up at Lowes or HD.. Only had the thing like 2 months..

    Someone may have had your grate off and forgot to use locktite Otherwise the two outside bolts which thread into the brass inserts inside the pump shoe can be a real PIA... One of mine broke off inside..

    As for the threads they are metric, make sure you use stainless.

    Bought it brand new? Not to say it's not possible but unlikely.. More probable that they forgot at factory.
