If you take it to someone who tells you it can't be welded, drive on to the next one. Cast can be welded after you clean off the fucking JB. A couple of sticks of 1/8" NiRod at 90 amps should do fine.
Clean up and measure your shaft, and have some one with an expanding reamer clean up the bore to a tight sliding fit.
If you had die grinder with a small flap wheel you could have polished up the inside of the bore. IIRC, that bore is about 20mm, you can grind a 1" flap wheel down to size against a grindstone with the die grinder running.

Do you have a scrap metal bin? gather up all your hammers and throw them in to the bin, this will save you money and time.
LMAO! I might have to step down as the grumpy bastard.
