Yikes!! That is major damage. Not going to fix that with a welder. Time to hit the bone yards for replacement parts. Unfortunately metal fatigue failures in critical components is one of the risks of dealing with 70 year old machinery. I know that doesn't ease the pain but the good news is salvage parts are readily available. Shipping on the heavy stuff is going to be the primary stumbling block.
