That is what happens when the starter support bracket is not in place.
Without the support bracket, the starter will torque itself off of the engine, break the starter bolts, and take a piece of the engine with it.
The only way you will fix that is if you can find someone that can weld cast iron.

The only other fix is to replace the engine.

OK, thank you, I didn't even know that this holder was original.
I once built one back there myself (see picture), because I thought if there wasn't an additional holder for it.
Unfortunately, the screw in the starter was torn off after a few days and I removed the holder again because I thought it didn't belong there.

many thanks

If you look close, the other bolt hole is cracked too.
Its a double whammy indeed on that engine block.Never seen them crack on the inside hole before.

does the outer hole often break?
Without the support bracket, yes.
The starter has a big job fighting the torque of the motor to turn it over and without that bracket in place, the starter will tear itself off taking a piece of the motor with it.
