If you broke a piece off of the case, I would lean towards replacing the whole thing. A crack in the case is usually easily repaired with epoxy. Broken off pieces generally have to be welded. It is always such a pain in the rear to weld on oil soaked aluminum parts such as crankcases, but very possible. Figure on an hours labor from a welder to have it repaired ($80-90) versus a new crankcase half ($150-200).
