Simplicity 860 broken part

Not sure what the proper name is but I was trying to remove the wheel with a pickle fork and the large cast alum?
fork that rides and pivots on the axle snapped on one side nearest the wheel.
I thought the wheel was finally moving on the axle but something else was giving out. Is this a hard to find and expensive part, looks like a can of worms to change out. Thanks for any direction. Only had this old blower a week and I broke it

How about posting the machines model number and the part number since you've already looked it up ??

Have you tried searching ebay for a used one or craigslist for the part or even a parts machine ??

Well it took all day but I think it's fixed.
I used 1/8th steel plate to bolt the broken part back together. Sorry for the drama, kinda got me nervous for a while.
It's beer o clock already.
Cheers.

Ebay

Was one on ebay for $100 or best offer, offer 75. I had tried that repair also, it will fail at the worst possible moment, I promise. Either buy the ebay one or get a parts machine.

Actually... many of us feel you can never have too many snowblowers! Mrs. Stromr is not among that group...She does appreciate the fact she can clean off the deck with the small Toro though.
