Slip the ball into the socket and secure it with a rubber band , tape , zip tie,,,or excess Oxford commas.

My guess is the plastic cup inside cracked or expired.

Been a long time since I worked on a 98 or older P80. Is there not a little locking pin that holds the lever onto the ball end?

Hi,

Oh so it is plastic inside? Figures.

Yeah whatever holds the cup onto the ball must have deteriorated.
