Thanks for asking, but unfortunately, no. Trying to get my shop finished, and have been dealing with ceiling drywall, paint and hanging lights. Too many things breaking down at the same time.
Thought about just moving the mower to the other tractor for the rest of the season, but THAT would mean taking the FEL off of it. Probably as much work as just fixing the clutch arm on the first one.
The fork had come off the throwout bearing. Got everything dislodged, and reassembled after adjusting the gap on the fork's arms.
Put the fork back in like it came out, but I think that it's backwards!! The parts diagram shows the relieved side toward the pressure plate, versus the uniformly flat side as the PO had it installed. Have to depress the pedal all the way down to release the disc, so somethin's not right. Makes too much noise to suit me.
There is a specific direction the fork must be put in. If you put it in backwards, the throwout bearing will not clear the fingers.
I think the shape of your fork may be the issue. The fork was made out of rectangle stock. Time and wear causes the inside front of the fork to round off and eventually, the throwout bearing can rotate and become non functional.
My throwout bearing carrier was also worn. I replaced the throwout carrier and I had to weld and grind the fork back into shape.

The fork has a nice square edge on both sides of both fingers. One side of the fork legs is recessed in about half its length and the other side is straight its full length. The parts diagram shows the recessed side toward the clutch fingers. Just need to confirm that. Thanks!
