I have a new rear motor mount for the 314. My question is, can I get away with bolting the mount on using 3/16" SS bolts or do I need to get 3/16" steel rivets and a big rivet gun to mount them. The stock ones are rivetted in. I have heard of people bolting them. Ideally, I would like to rivet it in but I would want to clean up any rust on the frame and paint it before rivetting. I really don't want to get into that until I strip the whole thing down, so do you think it's OK to bolt them until I do a major restore?
