I would be willing to pay you for that plateMy boss broke. I pulled the engine, drained the oil, and took off the stator cover/starter/gears. Then welded aluminum into the broken boss area and drilled it to fit the gear shaft. I also used a longer shaft. No issues since. If I were to do more I would make a cardboard template of the boss area, and then get some thick aluminum plate from the local metal yard. Use the template to make a reinforcement for the gear shaft.
