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..
Have a look at aerobolt australia pty ltd,they have threaded inserts,would it if applicable be of any use to use one of their inserts in the damaged area with a longer bolt/hardened washer?
