My nuts! Were so badly rusted and eroded, I cut them off! With a small very sharp cold chisel. Was surprisingly easy.

Yeah, IF I were to swap 'em then I'd defiantly cut them off......

Forgot to ask, the outlets at the bottom, for disks I assume?? I'm running drums so can I cut these off and seal the hole ?
