Since I make a new transmission beam, I thought about get more space for it. This way I don't have to cut away in the middle for the lowest bolt. Here how it looked before;

The idea was to switch direction of the bolt. I drilled the thread away and cut one for a helicoil on the other, but found it too weak. So I cut another bigger thread and machined a seat, so a plug I found could be fitted without standing over:

After I fitted the plug with loctite. Drilling and cut an M8 thread was next. Finally I painted for rust protection:

And here the final result:
