So.... Putting the lower unit back on my 93 Johnson,seems to have 1 of the 4 bolts that attach the lower unit to the middle stripped out. The other 3 are in fine shape,and the2 back by the trim tab are fine, what's the best fix for this? Tap it and put a thread insert in?

Tap it and insert it. They are used all the time.


When in doubt SET THE HOOK!

Be sure to get the stainless steel heli-coil kit or coat the bolt heavily with anti-seize lubricant.
