There was someone on Facebook who was looking at remanufacturing them, I don't know if it got any further.

I think Club Spares were going to order a supply from him. Don't know if it materialised. I assume the bolt has sheared, you can punch out the remains of the old one and fit an M8 coach bolt and spot weld it in place.

Yes I was thinking of doing that but want to keep it as original as poss. The bushes in the arms are like new to no need to replace thank god. Once i have refurbished the arms and axle ,cannot wait to put the fully rebuilt engine and gearbox in. :D
