If your uncle is any kind of a welder with a mig unit he should be able to weld in with no problem. You could help him out a little by cleaning some of the paint from the crack area, saw clean it back about  1". It should not take him to long to weld it.

Good Luck with the project.

Yea hes pretty good and i was going to put the new style 8 hp ohv in it for 230 but he said he could do this for much of nothing so i tore i down tonight and one of these days i ll take it over but i was amazed how nice the cylinder looked on it and i think i am going to cut the eyebrows  port and polish the intakes some and regrind the vales to hopefully gain a little bit of power

Yes, aluminum welding requires ABSOLUTE cleanliness.  Every bit of JB Weld and paint MUST be removed in the weld area & a little way beyond as JRJ said.
