I think the repair description is hilarious, especially for a part which appears to be made of pot metal. The hot rod solution would be to mill a replacement from billet aluminum.

Brian,
I like the billet aluminum idea. Start out with a 10 pound block and turn out a spiffy lookin' 2 pound bracket and 8 pounds of glitter all over the shop floor. Plus it would take all day and provide more entertainment.
For pot metal you need to use one of those glue products that have "magic" and "miracle" in the name. Can't miss with those.
