On the D51

One of the holes in the boiler hinge joint that attaches to the smokebox seems to have not be properly tapped. The screw jams and I don't want to chance breaking the screw off. Can anyone verify that these are standard 2-56 holes? Metric thread?

Thanks
Tomick

Its an M2 screw that fits into it and therefore is a 2mm metric thread

Thanks. A quick run-through with an M2 tap resolved the issue.
