Default Need clutch pedal or pedal assembly for 1996 Geo Tracker

Help!
Need this vehicle roadworthy before the snow comes, but the damn weld has failed where the pedal arm connects to the rod. I may try to get it out and have it re-welded, but I'm willing to pay for even the whole assembly so I can just swap it out (and get the old pedal re-welded, to have as backup when the replacement fails, LOL).

I used to have a welder, but never got very good at it before I sold it. I could still save some money just taking it to someone who can weld it properly, but how well will it hold up? It's a stupid design... the way they did the other end makes a lot more sense. That joint takes a lot of abuse.

I believe the original was a spline and pinch bolt, a good weld will last for the life of vehicle...

Well, it's been about a year and a half, and my friend's weld held up quite well...until today.
I was road-testing the Tracker after replacing all the clutch components and cable (got stranded a while back when the pilot bearing fragged, and when I got the trans off etc. it appeared that all had been replaced at some point but NOT the $5 pilot bearing... d'oh).
I went around the block a couple of times and it seemed a tad loose so I crawled under and tightened the cable a tiny bit. Decided to go to the store and didn't get three blocks before the weld failed again. Good thing I still had my vise grips with me- managed to get home with that. Maybe I should just cut the pedal in half and weld the pedal part to a pair of vise grips, LOL
Seriously, it's beyond me why they didn't use a bolt as with other similar vehicles; this welded joint is a serious weak link. the end of the shaft isn't even keyed to lock into the pedal arm.
Anybody know of an alternative assembly that will fit? Something a bit more robust?
