The pin that holds the yoke that, in turn, holds the cylinder is broken.

In the hole, I can see the pin and what seems to be a spring.

How easy is this for me to repair? Im pointing at the rod with the grove that is held in by the little pin, with the oven thermometer.

    the older smiths this was a solid screw, the newer ones they have some sort of screw pin spring setup, better to take it to a smith and have the older screw fitted

    Reason they went to the spring loaded crane screw is to eliminate fitting a specific screw and in turn keeping people from scoring the crane with the wrong screw. I have some in stock send me your address and I'll send one down to you

    I did some research. This is what happened to me, but during cleaning.
