Suggest you buy the appropriate workshop manual and parts list so you at least know what you are looking at. Then once you know what you have, then you can decide how to fix or replace it.
You wouldn't what to try a chain saw on a steel pole or a cutting torch on a tree.
You need to know what it is your dealing with before you try and formulate your plan.
