Heater hose outlet on intake manifold is stripped. Any fix for this?

I have the crack in the plastic part that the hose goes on. It is leaking and the guy at the station said I may have to replace the intake . That is a cheap way to make a car head intake for a car . I just found out the problem after a few weeks working on the hose and still leaking. I will try to fix it by melting the plastic back together with a solder gun .

Have not fixed yet - just saw the problem - this is a replaced one - after the original was replaced for its rupture issue.
