That's a bitch... But there's still some hope left for the old girl :) If the epoxi doesn't cut it, what about liquid metal (something like epoxi, but much more durable, harder and more resistant to heat)? I don't know how you call the stuff in the US, but i think you get the point. We used this stuff to repair cracked engine cases and failed attempts to tune the channels in a 2-stroke engine, worked every time (even managed to get a 70cc scooter to reach more than 70mph with a engine case patched up this way)

Liquid metal might work….something like Belzona. Here is a photo of the hole. What is weird is that there is a hole going back into the block. I am not sure if this is just a void from when it was cast or something that is supposed to be there…or not.
