Big end feed quill

Does the quill that feeds the big end on a vh wear ?
What should I check for ?
Should I replace it as part of a rebuild ?

Re: Iron head bolt size ?

Thanks John for tip with using Draganfly web site to find bolt sizes and thread type.
Now I know why all the bolts were stripped and two of the lugs broken off, someone had forced some BSF bolts in :o
Can cast iron be welded to repair the broken lugs ?
Cheers
