I needed to put a bolt thru a gear housing hole. It was a 1"x3/8 carriage bolt. The hole was about 18" down in the side of the gear case with slightly over an inch space beside the sprocket next to the hole. I welded a piece of 3/8 square rod to the edge of the bolt head making sure the bolt shoulders were aligned correctly. The bolt slipped in like a charm. I tightened the nut and broke the rod off. It was my machinst friend's idea.
