This is my first note to the group. Perhaps someone knows a bit about the cross-section of what I'll refer to the "Car" on my traveler.
Referring to photo, one of the bolts holding the "car" together, has broken off. I don’t think that drilling it out and/or using an extractor is practical with it still installed, and I'm not keen on taking the car off the rail. I understand the traveler is full of ball bearings.
My thought is to drill and tap a new hole half an inch to the side of the original bolt. Presumably the ball bearings are above and below the bolt-line so my thought is, there is nothing but solid metal where I propose to drill?
Does anyone have any comments on this approach?
