The nut is a castle nut, I bottomed it out tightly and will recheck, curiously the hole in the stud is beyond the reaches of the castle nut, so it will loosen itself until it catches on the cotter pin, so i again ask you for your help.

The hole in the arm is worn, that is why the cotter pin will not engage the castle nut. You really do need to buy a new arm.

If they are no longer available, and/or you don't wish to fund a new or used arm, I'd put a flat washer under the nut so your cotter pin will work. I would also leave the cotter pin off for the first few days so that I could retighten the nut on a daily basis. I can pretty much guarantee you that if you don't, you'll have the EXACT same problem as you did before in no time. Even my plan is not a sure bet; you really need to replace that arm.

If you have the time, pop the one off the other side and compare the hole diameters with a calipers. I think you'll be surprised.
