    Go find one at a junkyard or on ebay. You need to replace that.

    if you can't replace it . find a machine shop that has a tig welder. they can either put the piece that broke off back on or they could build up that area. you would have to drill and tap it though. good luck man and don't be hard on yourself. shit happens, we can't control everything.
