914-6 oil tank broken stud

i had to pull the oil tank out of my 914 to address a leak, and one of the mounting studs on the tank broke when i went to remove the nut. it broke about a 1/4" off of the tank.

quick google search last night didn't yield any good intel, what am i looking at to replace that stud?...

A good machinist can fix it for you. Take the tank to them and explain. I think there is a copper coating inside the tank, which may be important for them to know.

it's been recommended to me to have it brazed rather than welded. definitely not handling this myself, i'll find a pro.

thanks...
