If this vent piece has good chrome on the outside and you want to use it, I would fabricate a plate that would go around the boss and cover as much area as possible and screw or rivet it to another piece on the other side. This would prevent the crack getting any bigger and give you added strength. Be careful that this added bulk will still fit the opening.
On the other hand, if the chrome is bad and you will have it replated, get another one.
