71 Cuda. How in the heck do you get the bolt head into these key holes? I have 2 types of J bolts, 90 degree and one with a slight angle. The heads are the same size though and I just cannot get them in these holes. I rotated the bolt 180 degrees and still won't go in. I'd hate to enlarge the hole or shave the heads.

If this is a tab that hangs down try putting it in from the threaded end.

Screw it I put the bolt to the grinder and made the top and bottom flat. Left the sides round and viola they fit securely.

Yea, I've had to do the same myself. Besides, who's going to see it anyway?
