Could also be a bad head gasket leaking back from the water jacket in the back of the block!??? it will run down the bell housing you REALLY need to clean it and do a pressure test to pinpoint it otherwise you are pissing in the wind!

Cracked bell housing

My initial thought is Aluminum can be welded. Depends on cracks relationship to mounting bolts. Check and see if Bell housing is separate from transmission. May be able to swap bell housings and keep transmission.

You may want a good Salvage yard site like They have a Nationwide link to many Salvagers. One request and you could get 300 responses.
