    I am fixing a Ludwig Acrolite for a local middle school. Someone over tightened the strainer knob then FORCED the throw off lever into the on position...which broke the connector bar.

    Just seeing if anyone has one they might have no use for.

    That's what I'm calling the part that attaches, with rivets, to the part that pushes the throw off up and down.

    I think I have a brand new P85 at home, if you'd rather have the whole assembly. PM me.

    Just to follow up....I received the new P85 and after taking the old on off I was able to get a picture of the part that broke off. I'm guessing that some kid had tightened the strainer knob as tight as it would go and when the throw off lever didn't want to lock into place they forced it...breaking the connector.
