My 3540LS tripod broke and needs to be repaired. I think it's a simple repair if I can find the part.

The metal cast piece at the top of the leg section fractured. The CF leg is fine, but the metal casting needs to be replaced. I can epoxy it in place if I can get the part.

Here is the link to the Gitzo parts diagram. It looks like they have a single part that includes both the leg and the casting. The part is D09504.32 according to the diagram.

Can someone confirm that this is the correct part? And is anyone aware of a source of parts other than Gitzo/Manfrotto?
