I've been a lurker since August and gleamed loads of info from Ribnet for my SIB, thanks! I have now a 4.2m sib on an old converted caravan trailer. Like many I started with the idea of inflating but it gets heavy quick.
I wonder if anyone has faced a similar issue on Honda BF20D 2007, I went to change the impeller and two of the impeller housing bolts have snapped off. see pic
I believe from Googling I need to:
- soak in wd40
Buy left hand drill bit for pilot hole in snapped bolt
then use bolt extractor bit
Buy 4x new Honda bolts (50mm x 5mm)
I have new impeller, just need to buy gasket from somewhere
Has anybody come across this before? There was no grease anywhere, it was bone dry which must have corroded the bolts. It was all going so smoothly and would've been simple to change otherwise!
I would be very grateful if anyone has any tips for a keen amateur. OR let me know if there is an easier way to extract the snapped bolts.
