Hi the ball end on my lift arm is completely shagged so was hoping to get away with a new weld on end but not having much joy in finding one.
Does anyone have any clues for me to follow.

You mean a ball end like this one?

Do you want to keep the original? I have never done this but have heard about it being done. Remove the arm, turn it upside down, cut out about 1/8" of what was the bottom of the ball holder. Heat the end and press it back together then weld it and smooth the weld down. When done you should not see the weld and the top part of the ball holder where the weight is still looks like original which it is. Possibly the amount you cut out depends on your eyesight and the amount you think should be cut out, this depends on how loose the ball really is. Try it before welding, I can see where that may work very well and you could cut out a little more if necessary. I hope this makes sense.

I've done that with my Ford 3600. I used a plasma torch to remove a bit of metal, heated and hammered it back together, wedlded it and it has held just fine so far. I could have removed a bit more metal as the ball is still pretty loose.
