CLE Gearbox to Offshore leg

I've got a 98 XR2 Offshore leg and am putting a 2 hole CLE box on it but two of the gearbox studs used to bolt the gearbox to the leg are too short, They're the two studs that are either side and just behind the gearshift shaft, no thread shows through at all, they are probably an inch short. Is it normal to change them? They are the same length as on my standard box.
The other problem is the little sacrificial skeg that sits above the prop, normally this bolts through from the top, but its not possible with the offshore leg. What goes in it place?l
I'd really appreciate any advice.

The studs on mine are 45mm and are long enough for a 2 or a 4 hole cle.

You can fit the anode from the top you just have to put you hand inside the exhaust opening drop the bolt down into the hole and then use a ratchet and universal joint.

wrong studs JBD, he's talking about the front ones that are on the gearbox rather than the leg

GB Watersports to the rescue. Gregs sending me a couple of longer studs.
Now all I've got to do is get the old ones out.............
