    Looking for any concerns with installing a new bronze seacock with stainless steel fasteners. The fasteners are to be counter sunk in a fiberglass hull & sealed in epoxy. I have concerns with the studs and any electrolysis reacting with the seacock flange.

    Unless of course someone knows where I can find 3-5/16 diameter X 2.5 inch long bronze machine screws and nuts :cool:

    I can't find them anywhere...

    I did Gonzo. I wouldn't dare post without doing some research first:)
    I checked Jamestown & a few others. None had the size or type I needed. I'll keep up the effort as I too am weary of mixing the metals.

    I never heard of Boltdepot, however they have them! And I don't have to order them by the gross either. Thank you as always!

    CCfasteners has them listed, not cheap at about $6 apiece but well worth it.

    Steve.

    Bolt Depot had the bolts, washers, nuts etc all individually priced. I'm in for $17.00 with the shipping... ZERO complaints! machine screws, flat & split washers, and nuts all silicon bronze. Small price to pay for peace of mind!
