I am pretty sure that can be welded back on. There is a guy here in Sheffield that has done a few Ally welding jobs for me. Get looking in the Yellow pages for someone local. Or ask some small engineering workshop, they may be able to point you in the right direction........ good luck.

Get a good man to MIG it. A wipe of filler and a bit of care should then sort it.

That's the way I'd go-Tig is prettier but it'll get a shedload hotter.

Sorry to hear about the accident.
To take a different tack....Is it really a problem?

It could be TIG welded back on however.
Try Task Welding in Hilsea, I've used them before and can reccomend them.

to be fair you could probably drill coresponding holes in both the broken casting and the remaining cav plate and fit some stainless dowels with some special glue to hold the lot together. With a little filler and paint it'll be fine.

I've got some stainless dowles and some devweld glue you could use, would be rock solid

All together now.... "We will fix it, we will mend it, we will stick it with glue glue glue..."

Or perhaps some stiff cardboard and some brown parcel tape, it's ever so sticky.
