...and we are off it's being welded. Fingers crossed this goes to plan as I need these brakes.
So the drill and trap has already been tried, huh? Sounds like you're doing the right thing to weld and tap. Good luck! Save all the Alteks you can!
Thanks 'dog, I guess it was tried already. All I tried was helicoils and the like and as the hole is 6mm they weren't able to help.
BTW I didn't get them into this state it was a previous owner. I seem to like to make things harder for myself by getting incomplete or broken stuff and fixing it. It would be easier, if I factored in my time and effort to buy NOS, but what the hey.
Any who, it should be welded on my colleagues break sometime this week I guess dependent on his work schedule.
Then I'll drill and tap where the real nail biting will begin. Is the hole fully filled, is there enough material, will it hold, etc.
