1993 Stars and Stripes Bilge Detailing

I have some time off, and my carb is being rebuilt, so I replaced the gas line and was disgusted with the bilge area. I removed everything. I thought I would address the pylon bolts and tighten them up. Is there a sequence to follow on these? Torque specifications? These are before pictures. Yuk.

Use some acid on the aluminum to remove the oxidation and weird "growth" that gets on them.

If it's not too late you should cancel the rebuild on the 4010 and get a 4160 to replace it.

Too late. But I have heard about the 4160 being better. I have also seen 4160's have major issues as well on our lake. It will be the next step, for sure!

Any suggestions on an easy way to make that bilge look shiny?

If the pylon bolts are stripped can you simply replace them with a slightly larger lag screw or do you have to rethread them

I don't know. I would take all the hardware out and inspect the hole. Possibly refill with glass and re tap
