Default 5th gear tach weld

My 99' cummins 5 spd with 230000 miles required a weld to secure the nut. third party inventors offer a "permanent" secure but cost approx $130 ?? the job can be done in an hour but I paid the quoted 3 hr rate plus fluid .. $450 ... just drop drive shaft, drain and unbolt back of case ,, bolt is on top. I now wonder if I should have redone other bearings??? edp
