    Hi Team !
    I have a little problem, because i bought N/T engine 6bolt and there isn't a hole on my knock sensor...
    I searched a lot but there wasn't any answer.
    What can i do ? Drill a new hole ? Or weld a nut ?
    Thanks for your help

    I think the nut idea is the best for your situation. It should transfer noise if welded solid. It is a blind hole on 4gT blocks.

    Move to one of the holes just to the right of the “correct” location. Plenty of holes with the correct thread pitch and size to choose from back there.
