Hi Dave, not sure about your area, but a good machine shop would be worth asking as they likely could. One point to make is you may pick up a manual hitch as cheap as a repair would cost!

For eg, this one on ebay

Might struggle reworking it, if its a genuine 3cx hitch, as they where cast iirc :unsure:

cast steel though Craig .... very weld-able :giggle:
I took a a massive amount of slop out of the one on JakieB 'fore I sold it ..
pivot bored out to a more sensible 32mm and fresh pin fitted, grub screwed and grease nipple fitted, together with a packer behind the spring to take all the play out ... gripped like a lobster afterwards ... had I been keeping it I'd have given the hook jaw some attention with the hot stick/MIG too, to lose the wear in that ;) plus it got a new set of spring bushes and pins (y) ... made a massive difference to the bucket's stability

took a 3 ft bar to get it to let go afterwards and a bloody good flick to latch it

Sell it and buy a new one. Although I bet new ones don’t sell for £300 these days 🤦‍♂️
