makes me wonder if ur bolts were inserted from the inside and the nuts on the outside. that may explain why so much damage.
mine the nuts were on the inside and i didn't find any of them either. the only thing left was one bolt that had been pushed somewhat sideways and ground down so much i thought it was part of the bolt hole. (was hardly distinguishable from the hole. the rotation of the plate did that.
urs and mine are the only ones i have ever heard of doing that. someone in the business has probably seen it before though. that fine thread nut and bolt shouldn't do that.
mine happened in aug last year. sense i had pumped grease in there just before the trip, i thought i had gotten grease in the drum area.
when i got home was looking under there and notice the wire cut first. then found the back plate free.
