Default Flux core

Stick electrodes are flux core, and many entry level auto feed welders are also flux core (FCaw).
Generally FCaw has better penetration then solid core MIG or TIG wire.

Definately bevel the part to make a space to build a bead.
Spot it up and then run a thick weld around each side.
Maybe machine a collar and really strengthen that part, better than a new one that might break in a similar way!
