Re: Brazed half nuts?

It’s a standard practice for REPAIRING worn halfnuts.


The only way you can do this is to repair BOTH sides since the threads must match and you need to align them on a screw or slot them after brazing.


Yes standard NPT plug.

I just took apart the apron on my 1939 9A. The half nuts are separate from the levers and were brazed on. Was this the procedure for an early 9A? I find it hard to believe that they both were repaired. Also, the drain plug was missing and I was wondering if this was a standard NPT plug that I could find in a hardware store. Thanks in advance, John.
