Replace the ball, weld a small bead around the opening, and peen it in to hold the ball. I think Shoup has the balls.

Often implement dealers have stub arm ends about 3-4 inches long with the ball. The stub is welded to the existing arm after cutting the old end off.
Not near you , but available here.

You can also get just the round portion, with the ball in it to weld to your old arm. Don't know if they still do, but TSC had both styles a while back.

Just cut a piece out of the end of the loop, heat and bend the two together and weld it shut. Usually no need to replace the ball.

That works if one is coming out, but I believe his is missing.

TSC has the ball only.
