Depending on where it is you may be able to tig it. Mines cracked right by the oil cooler. I bought a used motor cheap for parts. Check local yards. Where are you located.

located between austin and houston, texas. mechanic said that he didnt want to try to weld it because of the heat may warp it then we have nothing to work with. he said he tried salvage yards and no luck either. been lookin for almost 3 weeks already. i found one for a 94-95 but its a little different from what i read.

Yes they are different. And take a few more things to make them work. Such as the oil pickup and oil pan. They also have no anti drain back.

I can get my hands on one. I'm in lale Charles , la for a hundred bucks or so. It's on a motor I want to buy but it's a 97 so the front cover is of no use to me. I also may be able to weld your original. Let me know if interested!

To OP , if it is already leaking how could it hurt to weld it. There is a product available called Alumiloy (sp) it then can be welded with a propane torch rather than a tig ..
