You could try cleaning the area and doing a JB Weld application(s). You got nothing to lose.

Surplus center often has good deals on replacement engines.

I have fixed busted mower engine blocks, FAR worse than that. Make a metal patch and epoxy it on.
Heh Heh. yep My brother, stole a piston + rod from dead Vertical shaft and patched crack with aluminum flashing to get 3.5 KW generator going during blizzard of '78. His 7th grade science project was assembling and disassembling an old 3hp B+S. grin2

Is that correct? 8570 posts in three years here....wow.

I hadn't even touched a screwdriver, wrench or pliers yet in the 7th Grade. Didn't used multiple tools in any home project, not until I married at the age of 20. Basic, necessary tooling is me.

No dad growing up and vested in our home with five sisters. No male mentors, tutors or helpers around. In front of those five sisters were two brothers. Each more than 20 years older than me. Both were married and gone as I reached 3-4 years old. Both fixed our home when it needed work. Both never took the time to teach me.

Life goes on and really no regrets.

I wonder if you could close that hole with on of those brazing rods made for aluminum. I think they were a zinc alloy.

the metal is bent back and not entirely detached?

Tap it back into place with a hammer, clean it REALLY WELL, getting ALL of the oil off, then slather with JB weld....

(and replace the rod...)?

what we can't see is gouged crank bearings, and other internal damage...

I'm getting there. Had to park it for a couple of days. Started working on it last night. Need to remove deck and unscrew the bottom bolt to take off engine now. Gettnig close. The rod is definitely gone. If crankshaft is good, I'm rebuilding it.

I found another tractor for 150 on CL for parts. He hasn't answered yet.

PM me if interested in coming to get the LT1000 I have, it would run and mow if it would crank, pretty sure the compression release on the cam is broken. A family member gave me a Troy Bilt so it's more trouble to fix than it's worth to me.

A TIG welder can fix that block without difficulty. If you were near me, I'd do it for you. (Jupiter, FL)
