    No garage, so winter is hit and miss for any time to work on it. Besides, I'm OCD

    It probably has nuts on the motor/inside of the boat. And if it doesnt it should. I like to use black oxide fasteners....think they are grade 8.

    If it's factory installed you will need a hand held Impact driver and 3# sledge to bust the bolts, then drill thru and use stainless bolts, washers and nylocks...grade #8 is what I recommend for boats over 70 mph, but change them every couple of years (they rust)
    also have an older speed great if you want it

    The hand held impact driver tool should do it. I just did not want to try to loosen old phillips drive screws. I bought the screws with the ss loader. Thanks for the offer. It already has a river speed grate in it, but that is the same thing, (or close) to the grate I had 25 years ago.

    I personally would not use stainless bolts....they are no where near grade 8. Mine are allen headed.....not phillips. I guess to each his own.

    The SS stands for "SS" Super Sport Loader Scoop for JC, JG, JI Pumps, ​not Stainless Steel. The bolts are also Berkeley and are grade 8. I honestly have not been under there to check Head types of the existing screws. Just figured they would probably be extremely difficult to remove.
