    Can I replace my crome Primary screws with stainless button head screws without problems? I heard that there could be a problem with mating the stainless material with the Primary metal.

    I prefer to go with the non SS screws myself due to galvanic corrosion. SS screws will strip easier too.

    I got this from another forum. So what I see there would be no problem to mention. Although chrome would be better.
