    Most (as I'm sure you've found out) are closer together than that. How about making one? Block of stainless or bronze, drill a big hole & 2 smaller ones. Put bolts through.

    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    Michael's find looks to be the very one!

    How old was yours before failure? ( Just curious)

    The chromed steel shafts rusted out. I think I'd coat them with epoxy before installation. In fact I'd clean out the holes, fill one and use a straight shouldered eye bolt in the other.
