Fuel filter housing part#

Anyone got it?
My fuel heater leak finally went from a seep to a noticable leak today. I decided to just eliminate it since i live in AZ i will never need it.
Turns out it didnt work anyway. I was going to thread it and plug it, but i didnt have a tap big enough at home and i couldnt drive it out to work today to get one. So i decided to Tig in an aluminum plug. That was a mistake. The housing is very poor quality cast alu. Wont weld for poop. Now its screwed up beyond tap/plugging it.
So i ground most of it out and hit it with a round 2 and its currently cooling as i write this.
Im afraid its still not going to work and i have to tow my camper on Wed. for my deer hunt. Any idea's?

I spent some time with a die grinder and got all the weld out. I was able to tap it for a 3/4 pipe plug. So its a semi-permanent fix.
I have another question. What's the check valve for in the housing? Its behind the fitting that the return hose hooks to.
Mine's....... well no good now.
Now i get a fuel filter dummy light when i drive it. Never had it before that. Its a new filter too.
Idea's?

I believe thats a shrader valve for bleeding purposes if I remember corrrectly but its been awhile since I looked at one. I ditched that setup and bought a Baldwin filter and filter housing with an inlet and outlet only because the dealer wanted $400 plus for one. I ended up spending around eighty and the setup worked great.

found a junkyard replacement for $40. I will drill and tap this one for the pipe plug for a permanant fix. The original one is still holding but the material is so thin from the welding and grinding, i dont think it will hold permanantly

i no longer have the engine because i recently did a powerstroke swap but the filter housing i believe had a 3/4" inlet and outlet. I then purchased two adapter fittings from the local hardware store to adapt the smaller inlet to the 3/4 inlet and the 3/4 outlet to the smaller line leaving the housing. sorry this is not much help i will try to look through my old receipts to see if i can find the information on it
