Several years ago I helped put a 331 SBC in my friends Vega the night before a race and found a crack 4 inches between #3 and 5 cylinders. At 8 PM we wire wheeled it, cleaned with acetone and did a big smear of JB Weld. Put heat lamps on it over night. At 6 AM we fired it up..no leak, ran it the entire season. If you do like others suggested, drill, tap and plug, then JB over it all, I think you'll be OK.
