Hi ReelMaker
I think it should ,thinking it's a stud with a circle nut that screws down into a recess in the bail arm .watch maker style !
it may have been soldered in though ,i was thinking you could ,thread it and screw in a brass screw ,from the bail arm side
but l couldn't do that myself ,not got the kit ,
