Broken Shift Rod /105

Greetings all wise ones,

While in the process of sorting out the gearbox on one of my Spider projects (typical gear crunching and difficulty engaging the gears prompted the project,) on the second turn loosening of the 4/3 shift rod bolt the darn thing severed in half. Why would this happen? Could it have been loose and perhaps bending the rod and throwing something out of alignment that was causing the original issues?

More importantly does anybody know where i would be able to find one?

I likely have that rod here in Toronto. Let me know if you fail to find one closer to home. Now sure why that broke but there was likely a fatigue crack there that you work caused it it to fail completely.
