Ive been tasked with repairing a motor end bell. The bell is a C face, with only 3 bolts on the face flange..and it was dropped, breaking off 2 of the three mounting flanges. Material thickness is no more than 1/8" (a very poorly designed endbell). Fitup at this point is good, but Ive minimal room to work as the broken sections are thin in cross section as well.
Ive got good quality 55% silver solder3/32" Ny55 filler for tig 1/8" Phos-Bronze filler for tig, .035 SS wire (mig wire) suitible fluxes for silver solder suitible fluxes for cast iron brazing Bazooka bubblegum Bailing wire JB Weld Duct tape

What is the best method to effect this repair?
Ive only got one shot at it and Ive got to deliver it Monday. I knew it was going to be tough..but didnt realize just how thin the motor bell really was...sigh...shrug.
There is really not enough material to drill and pin, unless I use paperclips for pin material....its that thin.
Photosflanges will carrying some twisting torque and will be carrying motor body weight. Motor shaft is deeply buried in right angle drive unit so will be fairly well secured from too much weight/torque.
Of course Ill prep by sand blasting/bead blasting the broken bits and the end bell breaks.
Thanks for any advice. Good advise preferred, but bad is also welcomed. Then other posters can pick on you.
