Of course, no one is open on the weekend here in Milwaukee so I guess I'll be doing this tomorrow after taking a day off since I cant get to work.
Look at the crack, see rust? If so, it's been that way awhile. I'm guessiing that the crack is in the thinner part of the ring that surrounds the cup.
You might look at junk yards, or you might take it to a welder? Put an old cup in it to make sure it doesn't shrink too much, ask welder to NOT WELD ALL THE WAY THROUGH, but to build up some on outside if needed.
Afterwards, press old cup out and install new U Joint. I'ld help, but I'm a long way away.
It's a "flange yoke"
.... at least that's what I'ld call it.
