Help with S&M of Fit forks and front brake

I want to add a front brake to my Fit CR24 using a Potts mod style thru the stem cable. The problem is, I have the small H10 compression bolt with a washer welded inside the fork.

The bolt is a 10x1.25. It is hollow, but the hole in maybe 2mm tops.

Where do I get a hollow one that the cable will fit thru? The link above looks like what I have. I don't want to drill it out as I think that the Allen key hole is smaller then the cable hole.

Any ideas? I have seen pics of the Fit with a front brake, but they are in threads from 2010 and I didn't want to bump old dead threads. I have been searching like crazy. I would even take a wrench Potts mod bolt at this point, but would prefer something that looks decent.

Thanks for you help.

You could grind out the washer and use this or drill and tap the washer in your fork for the bolt and forget the star nut.

New forks are out of the question. Too much $$.
I was thinking about drilling and retapping the hold int he welded in washer. I should have that size tap already.
So if I were to mess up the retap, I could use that star washer instread?

thanks for the help.
