Looks like it's been drilled off center or did it break that way ? Either way that makes it tough. Anyway you need a fine thread nut a with an ID a little smaller than the bolt. Hold the nut over the bolt ( needle nose vice grips ) and weld the nut to the bolt through the hole in the nut. A hard wire feed welder ( not flux core ) is required and fill the nut with weld not just tack. Get help to hold the nut. Cover all critical surfaces with tape to avoid spatter damage. Get a few nuts because it usually takes a few trys. This is hard so don't get discouraged. If your not comfortable with the welder a machine shop that specializes in machinary repair should be familiar with the technique. will it run without the bolt ? save you the tow.
Don't worry it can always be repaired. Do you know what inserts are ? Good luck

Oh yea. I forgot. Don't try to move the bolt until it's cool.
