Rich @ Crazyquiff’s (Mk1 Golf specialist) welded a engine case for me, way back when, so I know he has a welder with sufficient power to repair the crack.
So much heat gets dissipated through the case, so it takes some doing.

Talking of Mk1’s; I enjoyed my Mk1 Campaign, we made the front cover of Practical Classics and attended a photo shoot. Pub quiz knowledge; Campaigns had green tinted windows, which I always thought was a nice extra.
