The tube is steel, so after you remove the internals, you could take it to a welder and have him weld it for you. Grind the welds smooth and you're good to go. Just make sure you have the tube good and straight before starting the weld.

If however, you decide you don't want to go this route, you should be able to find good replacements on eBay.

He did a nice job for you Duane. A little grinding, some paint, and you'd never know it was cracked. Did you remove the inner shaft before he welded it? There are internal ball bearing keepers in there that use plastic cups to hold them in place. Just curious to see if that was thought about before applying the heat. How well does it operate?
