    Isn’t there no way you can make a new oversized threat in the damaged hole?
    Well, maybe it’s cheaper to find a replacementpart…but I guess when you
    couldn’t find such a part you would have to repair that wornout hole!!!

    There is no way to make a new oversized thread in the damaged hole. I spent
    two weeks, searching for a way. Those two weeks aren’t portrayed in these
    videos, i suppose that’s a failing of my own. The only way possible, is to,
    1. fabricate my own shoulder bolt, then tap the hole to size of my
    choosing, 2. fill the hold with weld, and drill and tap it to size of my
    choosing and still fabricate a bolt. They don’t make a tap, for this
    thread. Custom GM.

    Well, they probably make the tap, but it would be too expensive for me to
    want to buy, and I would never use it again. So that makes it prohibitive.
    65 bucks for a new knuckle is probably cheaper than the tap would be, AND i
    don’t have to fabricate a bolt, which, I don’t know how to do (which has
    never stopped me before) but still. :)

    Wow!!! That’s too much work!!! Thanks to not having to deal with an
    oldtimer or a not so common type of car it’s much easyer to replace it!!! I
    just thought now that you have the part removed you could place it in a
    workbench and do some work on it!!! But you save yourself a lot of work and
    headaches; not to think of probable problem when you have to take the car
    for inspecion or when you want to sell it!! When, in any case they see
    reparations or alterations on such a important part of the car!

    You get the bolt from a junk yard. If you want a junky old bolt. I can’t
    believe I waited several days lot that cliff hanger episode. I was
    expecting something really unusual. And I learned about 1/16th threads!
    That’s unusual, that I learnt sometihin’.
