    Default Mercury 75HP outboard impeller housing question

    Hi everyone,

    Just a quick bit of input if possible. I pulled the leg off my motor last week and was going to replace the impeller. I noticed that one of the 4 threads that secure the impeller cover was stripped. I was going to helicoil and replace the bolts with stainless.

    I have heard that stainless and aluminum should not go together in this situation. Any recommendations appreciated,.

    Stainless will be fine and is commonly employed this way.
