There are 4 holes on the 65-67, And there are lift the dots AND tenax 
fasteners on the Sprites.
Lift-The-Dot is what was across the front, 4 studs (lift the dot studs, 
NOT Tenax studs)
You want the machine screw type as the sheet metal type will pull out or 
loosen up.
If you have a marine store near by, they should have them. Do watch as 
some of them these days have metric threads, not a problem if you get 
the nuts for them but the normal 10/32 nuts from a part bin will not fit 
the new metric machine studs.
Lift the dot studs are about 5/8" tall, or almost twice as tall as the 
tenax studs.
