Wedge Material

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if Malibu used different materials on the arms for different years of the wedge? I mean... I know the arms on my 04 were brass, and I'm pretty sure most of the newer ones are made of some kind of stainless, but is this information published?

The second part of this thread is... Do you think you could change the arms to the different material if you had the resources to? Barring any complications?(ie. engineering help, CNC machines, etc..)

I'm pretty sure the gold colored arms are made of nibral, the same material as most props.

Any arms that look like stainless are stainless. These would be the power wedge and floating wedge.

Obviously the ones that look stainless are probably stainless... But does anyone know what grade/kind of stainless? Dontknow.gif
