This made my day

I had removed the linkage between the SR lever and the hydro today in order to break the rust seal that had formed on the SR lever side and fix my hydro creep problem. However... after heating and nearly having the ball joint off the threaded part of the rod twisted clean off. :( I searched all night for a new ball joint but nobody stocks on, not to mention i can't make a new rod out of a piece of all-thread due to the fine threads on the ball joint. Bah, what fun. :(
