dunno that is why I ask....

the nut appears to be some sort of insert nut that looks pressed in?

So what is the solution?

I tried to jam a nut in place with the OEM recessed allen head bolt.. first ride out it fell out (yeah it was loctited...)

now revisited it, there seems to need a bush to fill the frame to reduce the amount of slop...

I still have no idea what type of nut to use.. I tried liquid metal to "glue" a nut in place that I tapered with a grinder.. and it fell out...... I can't be the first to have this problem..

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"
