    Each year before changing from floats to wheels, I would call Stoddards and get a set of gear bolts sent out. They were always nylock nuts and undrilled bolts.

    Is there a tab welded on the gear fitting which will prevent the bolt from rotating? If so, the bolt is not subject to rotation and an elastic stop nut is applicable. Just because the gear can rotate on the bolt, it does not mean that the bolt is subject to rotation. You need to be able to answer the question "Can something cause the bolt rotate?". If the bolt can not rotate it is fixed. Things can rotate on a fixed bolt.
