    Looks like even if you fixed it you could not remove it anyway, the transom is over the cover and would be hard to remove?

    Heh...that one's about as useful as mine. I can feel it down there somewhere, but haven't been able to see it yet.

    With due respect , I'd really investigate how that was done (how secure etc) . if that "plug" ever came loose it could spell disaster Probably going to take some mill & heliarc work (missing hold down boss's) to fix and then , like said prior , your transom adaptor my interfere with access Tom

    Tom, what are your thoughts about capping off with a 1/2" plate and drill/tap the suction housing? im not sure what max. psi is there, i mean, i have heard of guys blowing off their HH covers, but if its drilled and tapped? i dont know, just a thought, to save a buddy some cash, and keep it safe.

    I've seen that done , takes fairly small screws (and alot) as the castings not very wide , maybe added to whats there ?? might be OK ? haven't
    t lived till you've "popped" an inside cleanout cover in the middle Naci (160 ft of water) Quick trip to the bottom ,We help recover a Miller several years ago that blew one . My TX 16 did it "Thrice" ,fortunatley it was out side , 2 times it broke the cover , once it blew the ends out of the OE bolts, Finally changed loaders and used the 3/8 AT bolts and reinforced with a plate Tom

    Looks like they trimmed it welded it and ground it down the 'Poxy filled it so the could "easily" make a trim plate Still think I'd reinforce it Tom

    I'd do like Todd said, make an aluminum plate about 1/8" thick to form fit it, then drill and tap it down with about 8 flat head machine screws. Then send it out to have it powder coated white. It would look much cleaner.

    The cover is there, its just welded to the suction piece. Its not coming off if its done even half ass right.

    Or you could just buy that suction housing widowmaker has for a buck and half and call it a day.
