worth fixing??

I have an 010 block and after taking head off and oil pan I found a crack about 2 inches from left to right by the antifreeze drain plug. It is about 1/2 inch from the oil pan on the left side(facing the pulley side and 1/2 inch above the oil pan lip. It is only in the fluid journal. The guy I bought it from said it had never leaked in the 10 years he ran the motor. It was full of antifreeze and not leaking. Just wondering if I put J B Weld on the out side if it would hold if it indeed began to leak if I installed it and ran it? I could try to put it on the inside as well. I dont want to replace the block but will if I have to. What about liquid steel??
