I'll have to dig through my mess of stuff. I think I may have sent all of my extra hardware to someone else a while back.

The ball studs are available in stainless on eBay.

If that isn't the type you are looking for, the same seller has other styles.

My actuator motor must be on steriods then. Not slow at all. 3 seconds and its fully open. What if instead of doing all this gas shock, latch stuff you just got a faster actuator.

I must be young, I like my buttons, I like my actuator.

They don't tend to be very fast because the motors aren't usually high RPM. I suspect that most of the actuators that go bad do so because someone tried to get every last bit of juice from a dying battery and that kills electrical things.

I am going to make this manual conversion to the strap latch, but the ones I find at Great lakes does not show the l shaped piece with the hole in it that keeps the strap from falling down in in the locker. Am I looking at the right part? anyone know if this comes with the "retainer"

No, it doesn't come with the latch. I had to order the strap retainer/keeper from the master craft dealer. I think I posted the part number earlier in the thread but I'm on my phone right now and can't look at the moment.

Thanks again Jeff, just to update the thread Charlotte Ski Boats has that part on their website but no longer carries it. I am going to have to fabricate one.

Another update, Boats unlimited in Raleigh had the L-bracket with ball joint and Ball studs, both Stainless and MC OEM I think it was about $15 total. Not many L-brackets left.
