    A machine shop could probably use time-certs to fix them. They have a thread insert that is bigger than normal to repair previously repaired threads.

    That is where the machine shop comes in. They will have the equipment to square it up and drill as small a hole as possible to make the repair. Those big-certs from Time-cert are made to fix a hole that has already been repaired with a coil type insert. They are going to be pretty large.

    Good luck with what ever you do. I'm sure it can be fixed fairly easily by a good machine shop.

    Couldn't the holes be welded closed then re-drilled and tapped?

    They said they wouldn't be able to get the aluminum hot enough to get any penatration I even told Em to open the holes and fill it back up they were probably scared of messing it up
