    Can you tap these out or repair?
    I want to hang onto this center section if possible.

    I have seen alot of attempts at repairing them. Some were functional, but not very attractive. I'll be watching this thread.

    Uncle max sells a brass insert that will fix them. That is the best fix. Or you can buy an oversized needle and seat @ vintagespeed.
