F/S Oil Pan Reinforcement rail

Morning Corvair Center!
I climbed under my van this Sunday and I'm happy to report that after a solid 7 days of driving the pan is still dry and all the bolts still held a 70 inch pound torque.
If you're interested in purchasing a reinforcement rail I'll be selling them raw for $30 plus shipping. I have a PayPal account that makes it easy. PM me with your order and a zip code so I can get you shipping price.
Thanks

I used 1/4-20x7/8 long serrated lock bolts. I’ll upload a picture if you need one

I forget if this has been talked about before (here or in other discussions) but is there a benefit to using thread inserts (Heli-Coil, etc) into the block and then studs and nuts?
Just thinking that with the use of this brace you could also increase clamping force with the threaded inserts.

More work than it's worth for just adding the brace perhaps, but if someone is rebuilding their engine it would be a perfect time to add some strength to the holes.

Just thinking out loud. Might be some reason inserts won't work in those positions, or it's too many holes to bother with, or whatever. But it seems like more clamping force could be a benefit even with the brace spreading the load.

Any time you can install studs in aluminum you are better off as the good threads will last. Any questionable or bad threads should be replaced with inserts. Replacing all? It's your time and money. More torque is not required if the pan rail is flat and the gasket is applied properly.
