Welding aluminum can be done pretty good, I prefer TIG welding for that, 2nd choice would be a MIG with a spool gun. Your best bet would be to take the guts out of the trans and bring the empty housing into a local machine shop or jobber shop. They could prolly do it fairly cheap, its less than a day's work.
