Call the tension in the string T, and the reactions at the pin X horizontally and Y vertically. You can solve this by the usual methods of resolve horizontally, resolve vertically and take moments:

$R(\rightarrow): X = T \sin 67^o$

$R(\uparrow): Y +T\cos 67^o = 40$

$M(C): 40 \times 6 = T \times 10.5\sin 67^o$

Can you complete it now?
