    Fox sells that part for sure but I doubt anyone has it in stock to sell you.

    IMO drill it out and nut and bolt it. It might be worth it to drill out the threads on the other 5 to do the same since they will all corrode to become 1 soon enough.

    That's what is happening and you need a 5 gallon bucket of anti-seize and yearly maintenance to keep it at bay.

    I'm not a huge fan of anti seize because it reduces the chances of the bolts being properly torqued to what they should be, but in the salt belt and out east, I would lather all of my fasteners with anti seize and give everything metal a good coating of oil to keep rust and corrosion away. Better safe than sorry.

    I agree with this guy up here. ^^^
