Front spindle lock ring

Anyone know the part # or source for the front spindle lock ring for a 901. One of mine the lock tab has sheared off. See photo

Not all that uncommon. Just have a welder braze a bit of steel there and shape as needed, that's how I repaired mine, and so have many others.

The failure probably came about from sloppy workmanship, you must hold the inner nut as you tighten the outer, otherwise you stress the tab.

Yes, I assumed that a bit of welding might be the answer, but thought maybe someone had a source for these. Thanks
