Shade tree ,,get it home

So yesterday we had quite a storm,,,plowed 14 hours 2pm-430 am..

Got in my 95 OBS,,100 ft,,tie rod end was beat,,fall off/broke ....
By 6 am got it back in to our shop,,only 100ft a way..14" snow though

So it's the tie left tie rod end,outer,connecting to wheel,,
Well I'm beat ,,14 hrs plowing,,,
What do I do,,back up to shop,,bring it in with backhoe JD 750
Now here it gets interesting,,
Drill out the socket/rod end ,,drop a 3/4 " grade 8 stnls bolt in ,,2 thick steel washers top and bottom,,2 ea 3/4 " nuts ,using silicone/aka gasket keep nuts on...

Got me home,,14 miles one way, and back,,,,did buy the correct tie rod end,,it's in now.
Adjusted alignment via 3& 9 o'clock measuring inside /outside....

I don't want to try,,but I bet we could run our engines on wesson vegtable oil,,if we had too..

So what gets me is the bolt showed no signs of wear,,add a poly ball drilled through.... TOUGH
