M12x1.25 is the fine thread for that size and is used where loosening caused by vibration is a concern. Coarse threads are used where strength is the over riding concern.

If you must avoid the dealer at all costs, then I hate to say it, but the pig has got it.

Go to the wreckers and get a bucket full of bolts.

You can try this company, »www.metricmcc.com/, they are in Elmsford, NY. When I was a mechanic for Porsche, we used them all the time for hard to find items such as stretch bolts for VW heads and so on.

The finer thread has a much greater leverage under same torque settings. It could matter a lot!

not really because I'm going to drill it out (threads are already mangled) and I'm wielding on the nut so that's why I said it does not matter.

The tension delivered under a specific torque setting is much greater with the finer thread.

A good cross thread is better than Loctite any day.

You do realize what heat will do to that hardened nut don't you ?

tell me what will it do to the harden nut?

Are you talking about the treads distorting? Plus I'm just tack wielding it not doing the whole thing.

IIRC, hardened steel becomes annealed when heated and must re-hardened and tempered again. But if you are only tack welding, you should be OK as long as you don't heat the whole nut above the critical temperature of 1335°F (cherry red).

Also arc welding would be the preferred method as apposed to gas welding.

It's done



I ended up not tack wielding just because it was getting late and a storm was coming near but as you can see It's easy to get to again..

btw the bolt I ordered was too short like 30 mm too short.. Lucky for me I ordered the nut because friken home depot here in portchester, NY sucks.. the bolt tray is always mixed up and they never have the size you need..

They say an outside vendor comes and does that... yeah sure.

Welding it is not necessary now that you have access to it.
