Clutch Fork Pivot.

I have a 1992 chevy silverado. 4.3 V6. The clutch fork is okay, I went to replace the clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing. When I went to remove the locking tang on the stud that acts as the pivot for the fork, the tang was brittle and broke into pieces. I went to every part store in town and none of them carry it nor can get it anymore, they all say it was discontinued. So what options do I have now? Can I just drill it and slide a kotter pin in it`s place? use a dye to thread it and use a nut? Run out of options here and don`t know which way else to turn. Any advice highly appreciated.

I wish I could remember what it looked like on my old 2wd '93 4.3 five speed. Mine had the Getrag (one large piece with no detachable bell housing) trans and IIRC the ball stud flat wore out the clutch fork, not the other way around. Got any photos to serve as a refresher? I had to go the dealership route (to the tune of $100 or so...) I believe.

In a while, Chet.
