I can not understand why I did not think of it before!
It is lighter, stronger and more rigid.
It will prevent boss breakages and crancase crushing.
If a locking insert is used, there is no chance if shaking loose.
A 16mm bolt measures about 0.624″ so is almost the same as a 5/8″ bolt
I will stump up the cash for the tooling and try it out as I quoted some customers for fitting a tube in the crankcase front engine mount holes to withstand crushing.
I can not do that now I know that this is much better.
I will let you know how I get on
