TF999 broken bellhousing at starter bolt

Well, I was pulling the motor for a rebuild and determined that the PO (#!*$&) broke the ear for the starter mounting bolt off of the bellhousing. He then used what I'm guessing to be JB weld and a large washer to re-attach the piece. I'd like to get this fixed correctly, as its likely the cause of my starter problem too. Are there any easy ways of fixing this (easy means ANYTHING shy of spending ~$1500 on a new trans)?

I could really use some ideas on this one.

For TIG it will have to come out. I think this could be MIGd in place if you find someone good. I was wondering how it broke, through the threaded hole would have been worse

Found a local welder who was able to TIG it back on and reinforce it a little.
