    I've started this so I don't clutter the defender forum with images

    I've found an issue while preparing to change my timing belt, one of the mounting lugs on the fan pulley mounts is damaged (4 bolts pass through the fan pulley and screw into mounting lugs), can you get replacement bearing/mounting or is it a replacement front timing belt cover I need

    can the thread be re- tapped or is it bust , 3 bolts is enough for practical purposes,replacement is generally a new cover but the flange can be pulled off and a good used one pressed back on

    What’s it made of?
    Looks weldable to me if you can find somewhere handy.

    Just a thought.
