Snow Blower with Tecumseh 37000 Starter Motor

I have a snow blower with a Tecumseh 37000 starter motor.
The motor mounting bracket broke off the motor. (see pic) Motor is good, gear is good. Haven't had it apart yet. Watched a couple YouTube videos.
I'd like to try welding it, but.....
Can the windings (stator) be removed from the housing?

Do you have a wire feed or a stick welder?

Wire feed.
I altered my photo. Bracket was attached where the green dots are.
New replacement motors have the bracket welded where the redstripes are. Much better.

EDIT: After watching a couple vids, it doesn't look too technical to disassemble the thing. Maybe do that in a couple days when I get time.

To weld down the the red lines you have drawn you'd need it disassembled. It would have a lot of heat on the case. To spot weld on the green dots in that size weld wouldn't transfer that much. You might get away without disassembly.

The insulation (varnish) on the wire used in the windings of the motor will melt at a low temp.I would not attempt welding the mounting bracket unless I could remove both the stator and rotor. Looks like you could use a couple of aircraft hose clamps to attach the bracket to the motor.

Clamps! Now there's an idea. Wonder if 2 or 3 hose clamps would hold. The motor shouldn't slide, since the 4 little 'bumps' on the bracket fit into the motor housing.

I was thinking of using 2 muffler clamps. BUT, there is less than 1/8" between the bracket and the engine block. Maybe weld 2 "L" shaped pieces to the bracket. Then clamp it with a "U" bolt. (I'm thinking durable).

Still have the recoil/rope. Hoping that doesn't break.
We're having a very snowy winter. All the stores are sold out of snowblowers.
