Are you talking about the bolt that mounts the arm to the chassis has snapped?

well, the bolt is not snapped, but its just rattling around in the breeze with nothing to hold on to. I guess the frame is broken.

the bolt is not broken and the nut is fastened to the bolt. But I can grab both ends and move it all over the place. I can see broken aluminum maybe 1/4 inch thick that used to do something. It fits onto the bolt but round fracture about double the size of the bolt head. This broken thing is what used to locate the arm and keep it tight----either the frame, or possibly a mount that can be replaced???? That's what I'm hoping--that this metal that holds everything can be repaired or replaced. I didn't hit anything too serious. Not serious enough that I remember it.

Sounds like the arm ripped a chunk out of the tunnel or belly pan. I'd patch it with a thick plate, rivet it in place, re-drill the hole, and re-mount.

ya, something is ripped up. It's real bad on the bolt end, maybe not as bad on the nut side. The bolt is a few inches long. I'm away from home for a couple weeks, can't post photos. need to tear it apart by undoing rivets on the plastic belly and get a good look at it. The partslist from Babbits doesn't help me much. Some guy said he had the parts I need if I email him---I did that and he didn't know who I was!!!! That's kinda funny, I guess he got anything any of us needs lol.
