81 S&S Ski Pylon Question

On my 81 S&S, the ski pylon is loose and rocks back in forth in the mounting on the floor. Upon further inspection, the plate mounted to the hull, looks like it is cracked. Does anyone know what this base plate actually looks like or how it is mounted in there? I can't really see it very well, it looks like metal that has been painted red, but I see no bolts holding it to the hull. My floors and stringers are pretty solid, it just like this metal plate corroded. Thanks

Do you see any square headed set screw bolts that tighten against the pylon thru the bracket? This is how I tighten mine up.

Same with mine, but if the base is cracked, that will be an issue. Isn't the pylon base attached to one of the tracking fins?

Yes, the bolts are on it and tight. Problem is the base plate has rotted and snapped where the pylon goes in. Don't see any bolts that would be connected to the tracking fin. Is there somewhere that has a new base? I could make one but really need to see how they mount. Thanks for the replies.
