    I was cleaning the sequence unit cuz it was acting sluggish and when I reassembled it I noticed I broke off one of the Electoral connection tabs to the Bakelite I was able to solder the wire directly to the backside of that rivet but I was just wondering are those rivets replaceable I do have a parts machine and I can definitely scavenge that part later if need be or will my quick solder to the back of a trivet hold

    soldering to the back of the rivet is fine. You could probably solder the lug back on where it cracked off and reinforce the crack with wire or a piece of metal if you wanted it to look nicer.

    unless you have new rivets, when you drill out an old one off a parts game you lose the rolled over part and have to glue the rivet in or rely on the wiring on the back to hold it.

    another option is drill out a lug from a parts game. Make the hole where the rivet went thru big enough to go around the rivet on your sequence unit ... that'll let you solder the new lug completely onto the surface of the broken one.
