If a rod is broken (or piston/pin/bearing failure) there will probably be more damage than the broken rod/part itself and a complete overhaul is called for.
If you have this done professionally it may cost you (a lot) more than a new (second hand) outboard.
If you can do it yourself depends on your skills and availibilty of tools; maybe you need to clean up the crankshaft or other damaged parts.
Maybe you can find someone wth love for these old engines to help you overhaul it with you?

The big question is: how much are you in love with this old motor.
