We use her-metal at work but this is more for structural padding out rather than repairs. It may have an issue with the vibration and if it needs to provide a seal then you may be asking too much.

When you say repair is it just cosmetic or does it have a hope in it?

If cosmetic you might want to consider carbon covers. Guy in Germany sells them.

If not then a second hand one might be cheapest alternative to buying a new one.

Good Luck

JB weld is a good repairer.
I've used several times over the years the last being .....
I've used on my old T500 two stroke.
repaired a alloy finn never broke or shake of.
and 2 stroke vibs like no other.
I highly recomend this stuff to any one.

I 've been using this stuff for years, all be it under a different trade name.
I work on aircraft and believe me a 2 stroke has nothing on a turboprop aircraft when it comes to vibration.
I have used it mainly for temp repairs on fuel leaks, it "goes off" fairly rapidly, it can be ground/filed down to a smooth finish and even painted over. It also works good as a filler.
A word of caution though, Dont use it where there is alot of pressure behind it, 100psi + as it will eventually start leaking again. very good as a get you home measure though.
I say go for it just make sure you mix it well before applying.
