Offshore Leg

Has anybody got a scrap mid section knocking about? I'm after the 4 bolts that bolt the saddle to the mid section (into the solid mounts) and the others that bolt the section that's between the powerhead and the midsection to the midsection.
Does that make sense?

Mike, lower two bolts are studs that go into the leg at the bottom mounts (solid mounts) and the top two are hex head ones. they are not hard to find brand new. Give Greg at GB Watersports a call next week (hes on holiday this week)
The others are simple enough, you have 3 bolts around the back of the adaptor plate that bolt it to the leg and you have I think 5/6 long'ish studs attached to the bottom of the powerhead which go through the adaptor plate and bolt to the leg (as if the adaptor plate is sandwiched between the powerhead and leg)

Your better off getting new ones as old ones are already half rotton.
Goto www.usboatsupplies.com they have a really good catalogue system with exploded drawings of everything and all the Mercury part numbers for all the parts shown.

Does that make sense?

Haven't had the thing in the water yet, but I can see that if I'm not happy with it I'll go back to what I know. I had many years of fantastic boating with my old Shetland Signature.

4 long and 6 short studs from powerhead to tuner adaptor
Mr Rob is correct about the bottom 2 but the top 2 that hold the tuner adaptor to the steering arm / swivel pin are socket heads
then 3 studs are on the top of the leg which go up through the tuner adaptor.

Is there a gasket between the tuner adapter and the leg?

They should be bolts but a lot of people use the same studs that go into the leg for the gear box to bolt too.
The bolts are 10-91903 #23
