Bolt size on Trim Tab Cylinder Bracket

Post by JimmyDutch » Mon Apr 23, 2018 9:07 pm

Hi!
I believe I have the original Trim Tabs (Boat Leveler?) on our 1985 F-36. Diver told me I lost two bolts that mount the actuator to the actual trim tab. Does anyone know the length and diameter of these bolts? Thanks, Jim.

I believe they are 1/4-20 about 1/2" long, but our boat is in the water about 90 minutes away. Please don't rely on this since I am only going by memory.

Thank you!
After posting I found a pretty good website, insta-trim.com and they list a bolt for the bracket. I think it is the right one, they list it as a SS 1/4 x 5/8 slotted bolt. Gunna get that size and hope the diver doesn't throw it at me! Thanks again for your help, Jim.
