Oh man, that's a tough one, problem is it will warp, and possibly also make the cylinder not round, due to the combo of both heating the cast sufficiently and the welding itself.
Being the head is gouged as well.. new engine time me thinks.
Worth a try, and mic it after, will need to be decked most likely. Since it's cheap to try, but guy needs to have good experience (old timer).
Most likely won't work, but I'd try it.
I tried to weld an orbital motor crack last year, failed miserably, no load even.
