Hey guys,

Long story short I've had the 112 combo for a few years now and wanted to separate the amp and speaker. So following a brief guide I found on here, I jumped right into it.

As I was taking it apart, I noticed the reverb tank was loose and was missing a screw. So I went to tighten the screws and one of them fell out. As I tried desperately in two separate holes, the screw would not grip. Finally I got it just enough so that it would not fall out, but it's nowhere near tight.

Is the reverb tank supposed to hang off the bottom of the board? Was I right to tighten it? It seems like there was intentionally almost no threads for the screws to grip.

At some point the screws were turned too much and the wood was reamed out. If it were mine, I'd simply move it 1/2" in any direction it will fit, drill small pilot holes and tighten that SOB down. If there isn't room to move it, a little bit of glue and a piece of dowel or toothpick in the hole, let the glue set and screw that sucker down.

Good luck!

Seriously, I'm not a fan of iphones and guitars mixing.

The only thing I was concerned about was that the electrical board is behind the metal the tank is attached to. I assumed it would be bad judgement to begin screwing different screws, otherwise I would have already done that.

Use some wood filler in the existing holes, let set for 24 hours and then screw-down. I would even coat the threads of the screw with some LOCTITE or thread sealer.
