These new pieces from AMD have what appear to be bolt holes on their perimeter flanges, at 9, 12 and 3 o'clock positions. Since these are normally welded together and sealed with (?), exactly why are these holes there, what are they for ?

my 66 inner and outer have a hole in the front.and before i removed mine off the car i noticed the inner and outer holes matched.more then likely a way to line them up before welding.put em in,bolt em together and see how they look.

Probably alignment holes, Sealed with seam sealer - get the two part seam sealer if your budget allows.

:cool: Pre-drilled plug weld holes.
Incorrect.

They are alignment holes meant to get the 2 halves close to where they should need to be in relation to each other. Do not use these as an absolute for welding purposes.
