Ride Plate Bolt Missing?
I noticed this today when removing my OPAS system. The first pic shows a bolt going thru a piece of metal (donut looking thing), but the left side does not have one. Is it suposto and what is the function of it??

sacrificial anode... do they usually put one on each side????

i believe the 03's didnt have them, and the 04's+ did. They basically take the wear of the salt water instead of the ride plate taking the wear. Correct me if im wrong.
