I would leave it as is because I've seen too many instances where the person made the part/s too brittle by attempting to heat treat steel without a proper understanding of the process. I'm not saying that's you but just prior experience in the matter. If it was a "hard contact" or load bearing surface then heat treat it.
Sometimes you earthlings REALLY amaze me!

If it had been hard to begin with, the repair wouldn't have been needed.
