I could repair this piece and when I got finished you would have to look very hard to tell if it had ever been broken,but you would not like the price, and I would not arc weld it. To repair cast is very expensive, any way that you do it. Ni-rod is in excess of $40.00 a pound. Brazing rod isn't cheap either and acet and oxygen are out the roof. I'd opt for a used lift cover, unless you just want to try your luck at repairing cast, but I'd have a replacement lined up before I started, it may not turn out the way you had hoped.

Not trying to scare anyone off.Most people just don't realize how much welding supplys have gone up in the last year or so. I just think you could probably find a good used one for less money.Some things it pays to fix and some doesn't
I've been doing this suff for a lifetime. Going to be retiring before too long.

Agree... I bought a sleeve of brass the other day that cost over 90 bucks. At 300 bucks I think you're working cheap.
