Oil filter adapter

I going to fix my gen 3 sho and sell it. I need to find a Oil filter adapter. That was the source of the leak, now it has a hairline crack and needs replacing. Who has a sho motor with extra parts laying around?

All I can find is a picture. Is this the part?
Welding is one way to fix it. It might be possible to use epoxy or loctite from the inside.
