The linkage for the steering?  If that is what you are talking about, I had to replace one on my 1050 a couple years ago.  Ordered it through one of the Bolens parts sites on here (can't recall which one).  Part was brand new, wasn't very expensive, and was a direct fit.

 

 

Edit.  Just went back through my emails, and I believe I got it through Sams Bolens, which i do not see linked to anywhere on here.

To get you going till you get one, you can take a flat washer, cut it in half cross wise, put it over the stem of the ball joint and weld it to the steering arm.  Will run a long time, just keep it greased.

If your talking about the actual metal breaking I cant help you but if you need just the ball joint itself I have them here

If you need the whole assembly with the non replaceable ball ends one of the other sponsors may have one

if you get one from an 800,900 or 1000 they used replaceable ends, never understood wht Bolens stopped making them like that

I think Rick Show has some NOS ones ( Ricks Bolens Tractors parts) and before I discovered all the good guy sponsors here I got them from Tube Frame Restorations ( his are repops ) he's up your way I believe

I had the same issue. I popped it back in and peened the metal around the hole with a punch to get it to stay in. This worked for a while, but it would eventually work itself loose again. I finally just cut the end off and drilled and tapped it for a replaceable end.
