    Wear ring replacement

    Going to finish up replacing the wear ring in my 98 770 in couple weeks took it all apart when was at kake last time except didnt have torx bits to get bottom two bolts out. Couple questions to make sure i have everything needed before heading back down. Any of the bolts need any type threadlocker when going back together or what are torque specs. Also anyone know offhand size of unlock nuts for the wear ring I forgot to bring one back to pick up new ones.

    Loctite any time you have a metal machine screw going into a metal hole with no lock washers. If it's on or affixed to an engine, then loctite even if you have lock washers. Just use it sparingly. A dab will do ya.
    As for torque specs, there are none. Just don't be stupid. When it feels tight, it's tight. I usually go until the bolt stops and crank it 1/8 turn farther if it's a 14mm or larger bolt. But some would also call me a hack so to each their own I guess.

    How hard was the job of doing a wear ring? My Daytona 1000 needs one desperately.

    its not hard.. as long as the bolts aren't seized.. its a poor design though so you need two people (one to hold the nuts in the hull) or be patient with vice grips.. I can change mine in an hour easy..
