H.I.M. are my go to for Japanese truck parts, seems it's been awhile and they are now called WANO. Thanks Hayseed.

I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

it’s alloy. I have considered building up and machining back (maybe building in a replaceable bush) - I recently got a 4/1 Lincoln AC/DC but I need to teach myself to use it and buy the $350 bottle of argon. All up buying a new assembly that’ll replace the (slightly) less rooted pivots along with the worn ball joints is not a bad option

Weld it will be near impossible, easy to weld when new and shiny but next to no chance when old and contaminated,. I would build a new one out of steel and put a nylon bush in it.
