    You can punch it through and then go with the upgraded WFO M8 solid mount. Shoot Rich a PM for details.

    Its going to be easier and safer to upgrade the mount. Not a big job.

    the mount being the to brackets either side of the pump tunnel that are covered in really hard glue stuff?? the shank is poping out a good 1/4 of an inch ..just need something with serious grip to unthread it
