    I've fixed a cracked/holed (aluminium)sump by riveting an aluminium plate onto it, using plenty of two part rubberised sealant between them.

    If it's a small crack, file a small groove along the crack to give your filler material some purchase, and fill it with your JB weld or similar.

    It'll be fine for a long while!

    Chemical metal and apply over the crack and about an inch around the crack to patch it over.
