You will note that I said "difficult."

However, I was thinking. You could find the right diameter bolt - 6 mm? in the right length, and file most of the threads off, leaving 5-6 mm of threads near the head. Then you could tap the hole, insert your new pin and tighten it with a wrench (and Loctite).

You might even be able to find a specialty bolt like this.
