Help I broke it...

I need help figuring out how to remove the aluminum support immediately under the rotor. I was trying to replace the lip seal and after removing the distributor cap and rotor. I tried pulling on the base of the rotor and the ring part with the three holes for the screws on it broke and the rest of the base is pretty stuck in place. My initial thought is to tap to the inside of what's left of this base then screw a bolt with a wide washer to which one can use a pulling tool to get it out. Any ideas, suggestions??

While on this post I would also like to ask the might as well question. While I am there does it make sense to replace the drive belt hydraulic tensioner even though it seems to work ok? Does it also make sense to replace the timing chain? The car has 177K with original parts..
All suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
