Default fuel leaking from max fantini 12 xxl3

i think iv got a leak in my crankcase theres fuel leaking around the area where its screwed to the engine mounts on opposite side to the slide carb......i can see a mark which clearly isnt on the other side of the engine which im guessing is the crack......does anyone know where i can get a new crankcase from or if i could use a novarossi 1 i uploaded pics of both sides of the crankcase

as u can see the side with novarossi engraved is fine but the other side with made in italy engraved is different

Solution 1. Just buy a new engine with same internals. Then use it until it's finished. Then change the parts of of your current engine to the new engine's crank case and you have the ok-engine again.

Solution 2. Try to find a finished used engine from ebay etc.. Take the crankcase from that...

Solution 3. Try to seal the current crank case. (glue, sealant, welding....)

Solution 4. Buy a new crank case from novarossi. (I wouldn't do that, too expensive for a used engine)
