Broke pressure plate

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO mad I can't see straight.

I broke the second pressure plate on the clutch. The one with the six bolt posts that protrude through the clutch plates. It broke one of the post. Long story but I was tightening the 27mm nut that requires 51 ft-lbs of torque!

Question is:

Will JB weld hold the "bolt post"? They say that epoxy is good for 1500 psi. The pressure plate is made of aluminum so it doesn't require a lot of "strength" anyway.
