Rat Rod, good suggestion but in my opinion trying to weld cast aluminum is next to impossible especially on a jug and I really dont think epoxy would work well with the heat and pressure of compression.

These china engines parts are so cheap it literally wouldnt be worth striking an arc to repair it even if you have the skill. If it is just the exhaust gasket blown easy fix if not a jug is about 25 bucks and you dont take the chance of crapping out other parts.

OP As stated I doubt you hear back on the warranty.
