Aside from any damage, cracks or out of round holes, is there something I should be watching for when looking for the replacement bolster? Some indicator that I am looking at the correct, heavy duty version? Maybe a thickness measurement or other detail. I am guessing the hole pattern would be the same. Is this correct? I don't care to do this task twice or use the wrong part.
Since you have first hand knowledge, which service/repair manual should I be looking for? I have an owner's manual for the 2000/4000 all purpose model. I do want a good service manual.
