take mine to the local Machine Shop and have my buddy do a "Bore and Sleeve" to repair what I phucked up.
The machinist in me says: This was my first thought. Then looking closely, it can be tig welded then, clean up the bore.

In my world, making a bushing would be the easier way, (if the case wall is thick enough) but either way, the case would need to go on a mill. As there's really no other way to get a true inline bore alignment with the hole.

The wall thickness is so thin, a bushing would be super thin and prone to cracking. I would shoot for the tig / machine fix.

Yeah, if I need to pull the Tranny out for repair, it'll need to be so inexpensive that I don't just start over with a brand new Tranny Housing that comes preloaded with all of these goodies listed that I still need to cross reference this morning, but it DOES include the Shifter Mechanism Shaft Sleeve and the Shifter Shaft Seal already installed!

TRANSMISSION CASE SUBASSEMBLY W/ 3594, 8963, 8967, 9701, 11161, 12074, 16574-99A, 35082-07, 35122-06,
35186-06, 35241-06, 35242-06, 40659-06, 66290-06 & 11000101 (BLACK)

The more I think about it, the more I lean this way........
I would think a quick tig weld and rebore would be less than $200. Tooling is where machining gets expensive. This is a simple one time set-up on the mill. Only one milling tool required.

Send that pic to your machinist... He can quote from that...
