Alfa 147 SUMP!

Hi guys. I've a problem with the sump in my Alfa 147 TSpark. Because of speed bumps I cracked the sump, it's a tiny crack( the gap) length about 2~3 inches. This is third time it's been welded but still the problem is there, leaking..!!

What can you suggest me please except buying a new one?
Thank you.

(Do you know anyone selling s/h Alfa parts in Cape Town?)

As above, but mine got a hairline fracture leading from the plug outwards for an inch. If it is something that small, I used special epoxy for metallic pieces. Drained the sump, blew compressed air in and around, cleaned it with some IPA style spray, then used some of the filler/glue. Worked a treat. The fact you have busted yours three times, I would get a replacement, drive more carefully and try carry out a full repair on the older spare.
