Would this work?

Grind both sides of the BOTTOM of the break like you were V-notching prior to welding. Use JB weld to attach the broken off piece and fill the notch on the bottom with JB Weld.

If the JB Weld will be too thick in the break maybe some other substance or epoxy would be better. You want the break to be closed up the best it can be. With a repair instead of a replacement the base will better match the motor. If you are going to repaint you can make the base repair nearly perfect so it can't be detected. But why would you repaint such a nice original finish?
