Equalizer in their Installation Manuals describe it as
Angle Set Bolt, 7/16" x 1-1/2"

Pud Bolt must be an 'Industry Slang' nomenclature

The hitch doesn't seem to be damaged. It looks like the hitch head slid in the slot in the shank bar. Probably from jerking the tow strap/cable while trying to pull the machine out. It may have crushed the angle set bolt bolt. You do not show a picture of the bottom of the hitch head. Possibly broke the casting where the angle bolt is located.

The hitch is designed to pull a rolling load, not a static load. If no welds are broken, you should be able to loosen the bolts on the shank and readjust it.
