Oil cooler blew timing cover!!!

So a while back I had the fun oil cooler give out and had to redo the seals/gaskets on it. So I did so and while putting back together goofed up and dumped my bolts for it. So not thinking threw them all in not thinking. Well long bolt busted the top of the timing cover. So my question is has anyone ever tried to repair or reseal the hole or crack that it has made??? I only ask cause I cant really afford to pull the motor to change the timing cover at this time.

Ive never done this but i think you could leave the motor in and be able to change them out. Remove fan/fan clutch, water pump, crank pulley, and oil pump and give it a shot
