I would get a quote for the crank replacement...
It's probobly going to cost you as much as a swap would...
Get a number from them...
DO NOT let them weld it in... that's sooo far beyond ghetto I can't even believe a shop with a license would even suggest it as an option.
it will NOT hold... it will snap off just like it did when there was 15x's more holding power (in the stock WOODRUFF
I'd say either get it done properly or get a swap and pay someone on hear a couple hundred to drop it in since you said you're not too mechanically inclined.
I'm DAMN sure you could get another motor for less then that job will cost you... granted probobly not anything better than an ls but still... that's WAY better than paying out the pooper just to have your old engine back to normal.
