I don't know if it's tapered...I can't move the piece at all by hand with the hole empty...and threading the shock bolt in doesn't allow me to make any movement either.
I don't know if it would acceptable but couldn't a welder versed in aluminum welding close up the gap? How about some of that Alumilalloy infomercial stuff? On the other hand, if it were mine, I would probably replace it with a good used arm.
By the way David...great looking motor! I hope mine turns out as nice.
