Just to let everyone know.
I borrowed a power drill from Brad White, and Rick W. gave me one of those new, pretty, glistening, stainless steel bolts, and a pretty hanger.
The bolt has been placed a little above where the old pro, would of been, if the flake was still there. Unfortunately, I had 3 wrenches with me, and none of them fit the nut, ( I ought to have checked), so I'll have to rap off again Wed. and tighten up the nut.
Even Freddie W. sent me off with a smile--so I guess there won't be too much bickering over this new bolt.
