Any suggestions/hints would be greatly appreciated. I’m in Winter Garden/Orlando area.
Without knowing the year/make of your specific 9.9 I can't say for sure but the one I have will fall out from the bottom if you cut the bolt head off. Yours looks similar.If I cut the bolt head off it will leave the shaft of the bolt in the hole and I won’t be able to slide the old connector out.
Makes sense! Thanks!
Good thing you are a certified backyard ******* marine mechanic
