Jubilee Clip.

cheers for the comments, what happens if you don't tighten it first?

if you clamp the bolt, and then try ro tighten the jubilee clip, you wont get a good grip becuase the mount is pivoting against the slave piston... whereas tighten the jubilee clip first compresses that side leaving the sturdier bolt to do its job

Also if you do bolt first then clamp as you tighten the clamp it'll be pulling on the bolt and will be likely to rip your thread out your frame on the one remaining good bolt.

Alright cheers, it's worked fine. Tar for the help lads. Let's just hope it'll stay like that until a new frame or tapping. :)

Have you tried using a longer bolt? Like a booster bolt, just put the spacers on, then the bolt reaches further down into the remaining thread, and grips on, works a treat. :) It's good for a temporary fix, but you can only undo and tighten it back up it a few times before it threads again, then you have to helicoil it, or use a jubilee clip.
