You may need to pull the head. It would be very dificult to get to the holes near the frame.
A guy that I work with has a machine shop. I donít think I am going to mess around with it, I am going to pull the head and have him machine it out. SkidMarx, do you remember what size inserts you used? Or even what size bolts are used?
