    Jb weld it, get the waterproof putty and youll be fine. I blew out a freeze plug and just put that over the hole and it's holding up great. How did it crack? May want to look into that, see if there are any worn rubber grommets that need replacing. Check your motor mounts too

    ...also, I've only had it running on the trailer for approx 40s....so my guessing would be that the people I sent it to to winterize did a half ass job.

    Honestly just buy a quality used one. Mine did the same thing on a Gtx I had. I tried the Jb weld but it's crap, you'll end up doing it over and over. Either pull it off and get it properly fixed or buy a used one. A used one is probably cheaper and a better option.

    Used one is good cheap enough on eBay but it's summer jb weld will get you thru the season I'm two years on a 2" hole you have just a crack. Clean it well mix the putty good apply and keep an eye on it. And worry bout it in the off season

    unless your on the off season You may not have the gromets it was an x4 thing. Bad winterization could have done that. Learn to do it your self. Too easy to do why to pay other exspecially when you have the support for this forum
