Not sure if this would help, but I saw a honda 185 for sale in the Midland Daily News 2 days ago. You could try the net to see if it's on there.

I have an old big red 250 I could part with. I ran great. Then something happened to the electrical system and I can't get any spark now.

how bad are the holes stripped? you can heli-coil stripped holes. They even sell kits are your local harbor freight, or performance tool.

It is a really simple procedure and super strong as good as new, or even better than new.

Most of those housings are an aluminum alloy. You can looking into getting the holes welded up then drill and retap them. Without being able to see it I'm not sure, this is only a suggestion but can you drill out the hole and use a nut and bolt throught the frame and housing?

Ya like Burksee said, that is a good idea too. I would go that route rather than switch everything over (only to have the same problem again).

thanx for the advice guys. i just finished drilling and taping. worked great and i changed the bolts to 1/2" so if i should loose one it will be easier to replace.

Cheez,

Glad to hear you were able to "fix" it.

Tip #2: To add some strength to your new threads it might be a good idea to add a little loctite to the threads of those bolts. In your situation I'd recommend using the "red" stuff, (stud & bearing mount) its stronger than the blue. If you do have to take it apart again it will come apart with a little heat from a propane torch. I'd also recommend & make sure you use a lock washer on those bolts as well. Happy Motoring! :D
