If that’s machined cast iron, just welding it may simply not work unless you know how to weld cast. I was a millright for many years and when we welded cast, it had to be heated in an oven to get the whole piece hot, then you welded it hot, and put it back in the oven to cool slowly. An inexperienced millright, welding cast iron for the first time would often curse and swear as he watched the weld cracking a bit behind where his bead was going down. :)
