1978 Wagoneer Hood "Nose Bar" Questions and Repair

First, what do we call the 'nose bar' piece that is attached to older Wagoneer hoods? The part removed in 1979 and later models when the grill took over that real estate?
Second, it is obviously cast, but out of what?
Finally, how are cracks typically repaired on this parts?

called a hood bar, cracks can be tricky, the hood bar seems to be made of pot metal... depends on how bad the crack is... picts are always helpful
74 wag, 349Kmiles on original ticker/trany, except for the rust. Will it make it to the next get together without a rebuilt? Status: needs a new body.
85 Gwag, 226 Kmiles. $250 FSJ test lab since 02, that refuses to give up but still leaks.

I tried tig, but no go. The pot metal won't take the heat even from tig. JB weld if the cracks aren't too bad will help.
