How to install hood latch RXP?
My RXP has no male end for the hood latch. The big hood, not the top lid. I have it, but for whatever reason, the previous owner took it off, and never put it back on.
What do I have to remove to put it back on the ski?

Ok, feeling motivated today. LOL. I better find a way to do this before I lose my motivation.
I took off the 4 bolts holding the large steering box, but it still won't lift on the throttle side? Any one have a nice tutorial for me?

I am not so sure if this is the right part you are talking about. check the picture if it's a yes or no? concentrate on the second picture, the first one got cut

Yep the second picture is the latch i mean. Underneath, there is a nut that it screws into. That nut seems to have gone MIA. So I need to know how to get the entire assembly off and apart to put some sort of nut and washer underneath it. I pulled the four nuts holding it down, but its still not accessible.

You're right on the nut underneath. I am pulling the steering cable off to see if I can get the entire box to lift and see from underneath what I am dealing with. For some reason, I don't think its going to help

Jammer, I think you have a square hole, but it's under the round washer.. The ski's an 04
Reg.. jammer's square hole comment got me thinking.. What if the square bolt was pre-attached to the post, then it goes in the hole (square), then rotates to lock in place / keep from rotating.. That gives the pin a fairly solid bottom anchor point...???

Theres a possibility Dan. I'll see if I can find a square nut that will go thru the hole. If not, I think I may have to drill a hole in the side and reach up with a nut.
