Catalina Capri 22 2008
IMPORTANT: This insert is built for a Track-Depth of 18mm and the feed slot cut is 3 1/2" x 1/2" .
DRILLING INSTALLATION: The insert sleeve is symmetrical, with two protruding nipple pins. Insert a #55 drill bit into each nipple's drill guide hole before centering the insert into the feed slot.
Lightly hammer the drill bit to make a mark into the aluminum back web.
Remove the insert to center punch the drilling locations. First, use 1/8" drill bits, then finish drilling holes with a 3/16" drill bit. Hand twist a larger drill bit in the holes to remove burrs. Nipple pins will key into the holes to prevent unintentional sliding of the insert.
Top & Bottom ends of the insert have notches. Squeezing notches with needle-nose of hemostat plyers to pull the insert up & out.
