Anyone help me find other than new.... # M120791

It is the yoke, bottom of left lift arm on three point for my 4300 JD.
Looked and looked and made many calls no luck other than new @ $85

Dealer tells me they are same starting on the 755 up to my 4300 ?
Any help would be appreciated. Not comfortable welding cast to repair.

Cast what? If it's cast steel, then just weld away. If it's cast iron, use a Ni99 nickel rod... preheat it a bit and wrap it in a welding blanket or the like so it will cool slowly. I've also welded cast iron with stainless steel with very good results. One of my friends TIG welded his cast iron bench vise back together after breaking it in two. He has abused the snot out of that vise since and it's still holding just fine.

I'll be darned !..... I could weld it.

Used some low hydrogen rod, and wrapped the outside with a half inch steal rod welded both sides.

Still want a new or used one as faith in my welding is not, shall we say 100%. But now it is together and and good for light duty service at least.

I bet you'll be surprised at just how strong your repair is. Don't be afraid to use it. What's the worst that can happen?.... you break it? Wasn't it already broken?
