Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 months ago

It is a special bowl bolt, and not a standard bolt size, and has drilled holes in it for the main jet. You need the correct bolt! Nothing else will do!

It was a 10 mm Allen head bolts. The reason I couldn’t tell it was recessed
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 months ago

I don't think I have ever seen an Allen headed bowl bolt! Was there water in the bowl?
