Try ACW Bedford.

www.acwbedford.com.au/

They only reply to parts inquiries via email.

Then there is ebay out of the UK. (Not the Aust ebay site)

Can they be built up with weld and machined out to suit
If they are cast steel or forged steel I think it would be fine

Before welding ,try a spark test .....most Ive seen were malleable cast iron.....and welding will seem OK ,but in fact be very brittle .

What are the pin diameters, the shackle internal width?

And distance between the 2 pin centres?
