broken bellhousing!!

So I pulled the engine from my truck for a rebuild and in the process broke the bellhousing from the starter, ask the way to the top, passenger side bolt. My question is, can it be fixed or am I screwed? I really don't want to replace the transmission right now being that it's completely fine and I don't have the extra $$ for a transmission at the moment. Also, would they even take it as a core if I did have to buy a new transmission?

Ford will take it as a core, I can't speak for any other reman places.

You could likely have the case welded, until you have the jingle to pick up a new case or trans.

I have a case for a late 08 prod torque shift. they're like 300.00 though and you'd have to fork at least another 200 to get someone to recase for you.

I bet the cost to weld is more than junk yard find.

Now guys used to weld the bell housing when they had Chevy 350 in a CJ5 Jeep because the cost to replace with a new AA adapter was crazy but they always cracked after awhile.
