Most trailer dealers with a decent parts center should as well. Might be cheaper/easier to swap the entire axle and not worry about a fix for it.

Do NOT try and reuse the u-bolts. They are designed to stretch and are a one time use bolt.

Don't think I'll fix it. We will just buy another. Didn't like the sudden stop.

I decided it was time to deal with my neglected 5500/6500 Predator Generator.
I knew it was toast so I just ordered a $25 rebuilt kit from Amazon. It included a brand new carbo, gaskets, plug and everything under the sun to make the thing run. I pulled the tank and thoroughly cleaned it. The interior of the gas cap was rusted so I soaked it in Evaporust until like new condition. Replacing the carb took ten minutes. I'm only running rec fuel now and it started on the first pull. Done.

It's hard to beat those china rebuild kits. Hell you can go through 7 of them before you reach the price of an OEM. 😅👍.
