How do you Potts Mod a Hutch deep H stem?

Recommended Posts

Im not sure if anyone here will have an answer to this question or not. I have an original, Hutch deep H stem that I need to convert to a Potts Mod stem for an early Hutch Trick Star. Due to the short length of the stem's shaft, I know that the following parts won't work because they are too long: ACS Potts Mod bolt and the hollow bolt from a Hutch Western H stem with the longer shaft. If these bolts are trimmed down, there is no thread left for the wedge.

 

How does one perform the Potts Modification to a Hutch deep H stem? I know it was done back in the day, but I'm not sure what type of hollow bolt was used.

I don't know how it was done back then but do know it isn't any big deal to cut the bolt to length and rethread it. Might be the easiest option
