Sorry,  not sure.  Are you any good with a welder?  It's cast I'm sure, but it can be welded?  It might take some time, but you could build the plate back up.

 

 

P.S.  Nice Bolens!

  If they're shaped like I think, welding might warp them rendering them pretty much useless. I'm waiting for the pics.

you would have to weld fast and only little bits at a time. Keeping it heated.

If you use a mig gun, you can pulse the wire and move from place to place.This will only heat spots and if you allow the plate to cool then hit it again, you can get lucky and build it up. That is of course if you have a welder that mig welds. Pulsing is a term that describes pulling the trigger and then depositing weld in the form of a round button like appearance then let go of the trigger and go to another spot/place. I did it welding a new cross bar in place of a real rusty cross bar on a 917.57560. It will not burn through because the weld does not have time to melt the surrounding metal, only the spot you want to fuse. In your case, it will keep it from warping. You must allow it to cool then as I said, and, hit it again. Done in a row, it looks rather nice. Practice on scrap. The metal must be sanded or wire brushed clean. No paint, or rust.
