Yep some how trying to find bolts in 9/16 and 11/16 are ones that are hard to come by and if you do find them they want 5 times more for them or so it seems. I have found them before but only in grade 2 which for what I need them for is not good enough so I did the 3/4 inch tap fine tread so I can use grade 8 bolts

Half inch bolts were standard, whether 3 bolt (WC, 47-48/WD,48-53) or 4 bolt(WD45) front. If 5/8 are loose, either use heli-coil or drill/tap larger. Pretty much enough enough meat in the casting to drill/tap larger.

Well if 5/8 are loose and 3/4 are to big try an 11/16 which they do make but are harder to find. Been doing a job on a Ford that used 11/16 bolts to hold a loader on and had to drill and tap them for 3/4 inch bolts and did them fine tread

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: JB Weld - by Staff. JB Weld is basically an epoxy glue that does an exceptionally good job of bonding to cast iron and steel along with several other materials. As I mentioned, it is so common that I have yet to buy a tractor that did not have JB Weld used somewhere. It is sometimes used so well you can't tell its there and other times used as a sloppy quick fix. Finding where and how it can be used correctly is key to whether you are using it as an "inelegant hack" or an integral solution to difficult and expens ... [Read Article]
