I have to replace the fitting on a deck spindle, the hole is stripped. I'm entertaining cleaning i.e. degreasing the hole, filling it with J-B, re-drilling and tapping. Good idea or no? J-B claims to be tapable but question its durability. Alternative would be to fill it with J-B and drill-retap a new hole elsewhere. Seems a waste to replace a spindle for this one problem when it seems usable otherwise.
Another point on this subject. The local store help is not really of much help. Anyone know of a tap-drill-zerk complete kit? Zerks are available but have a heck of time interpreting what drill and tap combo to use, i.e. SAE or Metric. Older Craftsman so it's assumed they are SAE.
