Oceanranger / Chainplates to change or not to change

I know this has been discussed extensively for the Oceanranger and other Westerlies. But if someone is in doubt if to change or not to change, this is how one of my old chain plates looked like:

Mind you, I was changing the old ones and was removing one of them, when the nut did not go off. Instead the bolt just sheared off / broke off.
