I will start with a heresy among fan people. 
Make a gear box cover and gear box out of a modern plastic. It could be injection molded, or might even be produced with a 3-D copier.
Honestly, as far  as  strength, it would probably equal or might even exceed an original pot metal job.
Being out of plastic, it should also benefit from minimal shrinkage.
Once painted, no one should ever know what it was made from, just by casual observation.

Allright, here come the slings  and arrows.
