You could try Alumiweld, which is a aluminum brazing rod that
melts with a propane torch. Its available at Lowe's, Home Depot or Sears.
Of course you need to remove the broken studs if you can. Hopefully you
can save the threads and install better bolts, if not you can braze up the
mounting holes, drill and re-tap it for standard threads.
Change is inevitable and progress is OPTIONAL!
