BAL leveler part needed!

Hi all,

Our new-to-us Jayco class c is equipped with BAL QTG levelers. These have a drop tube assembly with a screw jack on each corner. As I was checking their operation for the first time, I discovered that the threads on one of the front screw jacks are, well, screwed. Totally unusable for about a 2" section. I have no idea what the PO did, but they sure did a royal job of it. It appears that only the threaded shaft is bad - where the threads are good, it does turn in & out of the square tube.

I contacted BAL and at first they thought they had a replacement part (#P858095) and I was thrilled. Come to find out they were mistaken & I'm out of luck.

Assuming I can't find any part stashed out there, I'll see what can be fabricated. But, before I go down that road, I wanted to see if anyone has a resource for a replacement part. Heck, I'd be thrilled with a used part off of a set that someone's going to junk. With these class c levelers, I believe the front is different than the rear.

See reference photos below. (Note, I'll be away for a few days, but will respond upon my return.) Thanks in advance for any help!
