Best to talk to a welder but I'd bet that, since it is such a clean break, it can be welded back with 1/8" penetration and the threads won't be any the worse for it.
You do have the other piece, right? I've been assuming that you do.
The problem with anything less, such as JB, is that if it ever pops off you'll have total oil loss at that port. In 9 seconds the exhaust cam will be dry and just a few seconds after that the exhaust cam journals will be irreparably galled.
Fixing all that will run about $600.
The downstream risk of doing less than welding is too great for me.
Replacing the case means replacing both cases as they are matched sets. It's quite an undertaking. I would bite the bullet and at least talk to a decent welder. If he wanted to charge a benjie to do the job I'd pay it and throw in a case of Bud.
