Block or freeze plug? If its a minor crack on the block in the skirt or a non stressed area some industrial liquid weld would be the cheapest fix it`ll hold!

Start saving money for a new bottomend!

Indeed. Very good shop. They could've very easily washed their hands of the whole thing and left you hanging.
