Repair a cracked transmission case?

Is it possible to repair a cracked transmission case? I got a used transmission for my '99 Accord V6 because my original is TOAST, and I noticed unloading it that the transmission case near the axle was cracked. The place I got it from offered to weld it, but I'm skeptical that it will hold long enough for me to rebuild my original with a Level10 kit. Anyone have any experience with welding or repairing a crack cast aluminum case???

Thanks!!!

It's not easy to weld aluminum. (esp cast) Hope they have the right stuff.

unless he's willing to warranty it and anything else that it potentially may cause damage to if it messes up...i'd asked for an exchange or money back.
