But as Bill said mine and your model are older and use a different base…
Nice repaid on your side!
How did you see/access the steel plate under the fiberglass?
I still would like to remove the broken bolt and put a new one!!!

Alexandre is correct. Jabsco changed
the design of the part and did not change the part number. I
searched high and low for an old style base and am convinced
none are available.
I had the same issue with the
cracking bases. I removed the old base and used fiberglass
mat and resin to repair it. So far so good. Both bases
cracked. The older repair is now going on two years (aft).
The forward head was recently repaired.
To remove the base you will need to
back out the four bolts holding it. There are no nuts on the
underside. Under the fiberglass floor is a stainless steel
plate and the bolts go into threaded holes into this plate.
Be careful not to force the bolts!!!!
They will break (ask me how I know this). Use some lube and
be VERY patient.
Hope this helps.

base forward head Good morning Eric,
I had the same problem (base
I was able to unscrew the nuts
off the bolts (the bolt seems to me part of the fiberglass
bottom and unfortunately I broke one)
main problem is that I was not able to find a replacement
base… The exact part number is now a different base which
will not fit…
So I glue the old one
together and apply it with 4200.
someone get a better answer…
