    Engine moving around - need help!!!

    Polaris 1997 slt700
    Found all three bolts missing holding engine to mounting plates. Does anyone know what size bolts they are? are the metric or standard and how long should they be?

    They must have rattled loose. Chances are, they're still inside the hull.

    Take the remaining bolt/nut out and you'll have something you can carry to the hardware store. Be sure to align the pump/engine assembly, BD rents the tool.

    Looked around in hull and found no bolts. Diagrams show only three but I find 4 holes in bedplates. still unable to figuire out what size bolt these are. Called Polaris dealer today, bolts available for $4.50 each. part number 3706199. Anyone else had this problem?

    Use Locktite 242 or 248 on the threads - prevents loosening under vibration.
