Broken outdoor junction box

Before I go ahead and replace this junction box I want to make sure I'm going about this correctly and not missing anything.

I have an outdoor junction box that is broken:

The metal bit highlighted here was chipped off so the outlet won't stay back (technical terms):

I picked up a "Master Electrician, Single Gang Outlet Box, With 3 1/2" holes" at the store.

On the inside of the current box 18.3 CU. IN. is printed. Im not sure what that means or if it's important.

The 18.3 cu in is the maximum box fill capacity for the box. Tell us if you need help calculating the needed box volume for your device and wires.
