I just had a guy last night tell me he used JB Weld with the identical problem. He said it held up great.
Are you sure there is no crack on the inside. Is the oil turning to milkshake color after running it? It will start fine with water in it.
I know theres a weld shop that says they can weld blocks and they guarantee it to.
