Yeah that woudl work,  sometimes you have to keep both pieces; once I 
had to remove something like 28 screws, all at least 40 years old, from 
an airplane wing that held the landing gear in place; it was bad enough 
that the shock absorber bushings I was trying to access were $800 a 
side, if I had damaged any of the parts it would have gotten expensive!  
(That's why I no longer own a plane, by the way...)
