Album: Front Yard Tree: Cut My Losses and Move on

Should I drill some holds and run some threaded rods with washers and nuts? If I do, do this do I need to put anything in-between the part that has been split for what appears to be a decent amount of time? Or has the tree come to the end of its safety net?

    I'll let you know now that I have zero knowledge on trees, I'm purely a chainsaw guy, but I think that one has probably come pretty close to the end of it's life. It seems like it's got a lot of weight on either side and is a serious split waiting to happen, not really sure if bolting it together would buy you any time on this one.
