    here is my sugestion the 2 bolts right above the broken piece make a bracket that would bolt there and bolt that to your mount.

    i was thinking more of clay that turns as hard as metal when dry (any idea what this is called) and would this work

    I could force it into the hole, let it harden and then retap it

    ive use mettalik or mettalox something like this will be hard as iron but can break easily too.

    Stuff like "JB Weld" is nothing more than a reinforced epoxy putty. I doubt it would hold up under engine torque and vibration. I would either rig another mount, or look for a used engine case.

    I have a small crack starting in the same area as well. When I tear the motor down this winter my boss is going to weld it up heavily and reinforce it using the tig method and as a precaution I will drill the stud hole deeper and tap it deeper as well.

    no - money says - that will not hold --- no hard clay

    these are not the best metals to weld
    but -- a good welder -- can do a lot at times

    I was a welder back when I was young
    back then maybe rated around C+ welder today D

    now my best friend today is rated as a welder A+
    they are hard to find
    he would give this repair a go for you
    if welded -- this is what you need -- a very good welder

    fix that thing and -- Ride That Thing - Mountainman
