Gearbox Question. How much is too much?

I have a selector cam plate out of a 5 speed that has movement at the join between the center boss and the plate itself. The box was shifting ok prior to strip down and other than bearings, this movement is the only thing that looks unusual. My question: Should there be zero play at this join, as is the case with the other cam plate. Alternatively; Is it viable to carefully align things and then feed some braze, or silver solder into the join flange/boss to remove the slop? Replacement cam plates are available but at their cost another remedy would be preferred.

Any movement is too much. I have brazed them. I could see TIG welding them. Or getting a new one. They will shift when they are loose. They just make the shifting notchier is how I would put it.

Braze, mig, tig, or arc will do it.
