I think you are right Mike. I had the bolt I needed in my junk box. One of the previous mechanics had inserted the pins by hammering on them directly. Needless to say, the threads were buggered up. I had to run a tap into the pin to clean it up. I reinsert the pin by gently hammering on the bolt head, not the pin itself. It is important to fully seat the bolt into the pin before doing anything.
I got too many cars!! Insurance eats me alive. Dave
