funky connection on 68 7 hp ariens

not a good day yesterday - got about 6 inches of new wet snow - had "new" help with me and he pulled the starting cord out of the 1970s 8 hp 32 inch ariens and then the electric start failed, went to the older 1968 7 hp 24 inch ariens and did go the work done until the little ball joint connector at the end of the left side engage handle popped out of its socket - wired it together to get it back onto the truck, but I still have 3 sidewalks to do - so is this little funky connector still available or do I go mickeymouse something to make it work?

sorry I don't have the machine numbers in front of me
thanks for any help

It appears to be the clutch rod ball joint, Ariens part # 10247, that you are referring to. I am curious also if anyone knows of a location for a replacement for this item. I know Banta Saw used to have it in stock, but I do not see it now. (there item was 245-214 for 1/4 inch hole and 245-215 for 5/16 hole one) I do not need one now, but it would be good to know, as 2 of my machines have this ball joint. I think I will grab one from my local recycle transfer station if I see one on a junk machine, just to have as a spare.

that's lt - much more used but looks like it - holding it in place with some copper wire (14g)
side note - got the new pull cord on the 8 hp so that's running - life is a little easier

the blower has ser. no. 7-10m 78914 - not sure where to look for power unit numbers -I can get the engine numbers but I'm not sure that helps - buddy of mine told me to check "partstree" site and I was able to find it there - not sure about getting it from partstree for a new one or getting a used one for similar money

Might want to check the size of your rod and email them if it's the correct one. I think I ran across two different sizes.

This part failed on my 10000 series this past weekend (#1 in my signature that has been converted for lawnmower duty using the mower attachment), at a particularly bad time too. The mower was in gear and I had no way to stop it until i pulled the spark plug.

I just bought a NOS replacement on ebay.
