    Intake grate screws.

    I sucked up some rope and had to take my intake grate off so i could get the propeller shaft and untangle it. When I backed out the bolts, it was obvious that something was on them. Loctite? Gasket maker? Can anyone tell me what it is so I can put them back in? Thanks!

    IIRC there is a factory installed loctite. When I reinstalled our grate I used blue loctite.

    RTV is not waterproof... but water resistant. If you want some peace of mind, dab some 4200 around the holes before the grate goes on and while off the extra.
