Since the inner bolt hole is good, you can come off the bellhousing with a support if the block is actually broken enough to allow a nut where the threaded hole was, and then clamp that side with the bracket and a bolt.
Had a friend who's block broke on the outside hole and we did this, but actually had to grind away some material to allow room for the nut, as half the threaded hole was still there.
