Unhappy more problems with the heep.

ok so first things first comming home from wally world one day and all of a sudden i cant shift like normal so ok now what ahhh i know prob busted a spring out of the disc np baby it home done. finaly about a week later due to work i get the clutch out yup spring fell out ok np go get a new one. get it alls good redy to go in and i decide to clean off my trans a little and find this.


and yes it goes through



so now my question is do i just put it back in and hope it dosent get worse and look for a bellhousing in the meantime or do i take the housing off and get it tig welded then put the trans back in.??? to get it welded is not to much of a problem but then again neither is taking it out to replace the bell housing and the broken one would only be in for about a week or less.
help me out yall thanks

I would just replace it with a used bell housing. TIG welding an aluminum housing like that involves some real expertise & would probably be more costly than just buying one out of a junk yard.
