I would guess so John. Our repair should hold for the week but should not be considered a long term fix. It seems that we can get the pins back in fine but will be holding them with a combo of Lock-Tite metal weld and whatever welds we get to stick to the casting using a flux core welder. So, not the best scenario but should work.

Since the day is being consumed by us wrenching on Paul's stuff and the wives shopping, the afternoon will continue to be a mellow day with a trip to Arches National Park.

Tomorrow is Pritchett Canyon and Behind the rocks.

Update!!! Parts are here. Dale Stroebel is the man.

As a comparison, no shop here in town could get us the parts in less than 3 days. Dale made it happen overnight. Thanks Dale!!!!!!!!
