    Can this be replaced with any other type of bolt besides the Meyer listed part?

    Yeah its a grade five bolt. I used a longer one and cut it down that way he threads don't wear off instantly.

    I agree! The threads of the bolt will carve away at the hole. I also like to put Anti-Seize on the threads to make it easier to come off and double nut it.

    I just use a blocking nut. The one with the plastic insert. The threads dont really seem to carve out the hole but they do flatten out real quick Wichita gives you wobble and slop. The slop is what then eggs out the hole cause it has momentum behind it you can drive a nail with a hammer with a two inch swingg but could never push the nail in with a hammer
