Hey, Brian! I know I'm late to respond to this since I've been out of town all last week, but if you need a replacement pivot yoke there, I have a few of them that were in the "mystery box" I got with my latest EK-10 buys. I think there might be even one NOS one in there, but there are also 2-3 good fixed ones in there as well. They look to have been professionally repaired as they were completely re-welded properly and then cleaned up and look to be almost lathed down to stock specs. I mean they look like brand new but you can see the coloration in the metal where it was welded up. I'm betting they were either MIG welded with gas shielding or maybe even TIG welded. I can shoot you some pics if you're interested. If you would rather replace it than try to weld it yourself, it's a good way to go. Otherwise, good luck with your fix, I'm sure you'll do a much better job than the last person who tried fixing it!
I may take you up on your offer for one.
This one Broke right off. To fix it the right way you would almost have to get the broken piece out and turn down a new piece of stock then thread the end like the original.
Whenever you get a chance shoot me a PM with a pic & Price for one of them.
I had to put the deck on the 1050 to finish the lawn... After 2 years of mowing with the EK's I had to get used to the turning radius on those tube frames!
