    Hi -

    I broke a bolt off that holds the Bypass Door in my 4 year old Resolute Acclaim. : (....

    So I figure to take it out to the shop and disassemble enough to get at those holes and replace the fasteners with good stainless steel bolts. Then I'll have a fair chance of getting them out if I have occasion to go in again in the furure. The rest of the bolts a on day 2 of Kroil soak...

    I notice a good deal of accumulated ash dust that needs vacuuming and blowing out.

    Any words from the wise?


    Thanks,
    Mike P

    Be careful not to damage that combustion package ! (fragile ceramic fiber box that costs $250 to replace)

    Thanks -

    I'm taking it into the my shop where I'll be more comfortable and can devote a little more time and attention. I'm thinking that a good detail cleaning will help things get back together in a more harmonious fashion.

    Once I get the steel from in front of the combustion package free it is going to get Stainless Steel fasteners when I re-assemble.

    Thanks again ,
