i would say c type clip...if no hole..than no go in. pin


You would be able to tell what goes on the end of the pin by just looking at it. If it is a hole then some sort of cotter key, if there is groove around the end of the pin, then a "C" clip. If there are threads then a nut. Just take it back out and go to the parts store with it.
