Chain Plate Replacement

Upon inspection of the rig on my Morgan OI33 4 of the 7 chain plates are cracked, my initial response is to replace all (I have just about recovered from a quote received) and not weld the cracks. They are constructed of 1 ½” X ¼” SS flat bar and I am considering making them from heavier material. Any comments on materials and the sizing?
