I'd try JB Weld - the slow stuff, not fast set.

trust me im a firm beleiver in the orignal jb weld used it on a 350 1 time the the sides of block were acully cracked close to 2 in long next to freeze out plugs due to it having water in it i took a hammer and bent the block back the best i could cleanned it with a wire brush and then dried it with a small hand tourch so that metal was dry let it cool 2 the touch and applyed the j b weld and let it set for 24 hrs then drove the enging for like 10 yrs and never had another leak so know its good stuff lol
