thanks bruce. i thought it would be a wrecker thing. but i bet they are all seized in their like mine was. its not like it was seized into the axel housing. but into the t that it goes threw

just use a bolt that will work, it is just a hold down bolt... the brake T is a sealed unit unaffected by the bolt... oh ya drill out the centre first...
or use a barbed fitting threaded on one end easy fix.. Brass is soft and will easily be forced to thread ..
