I can't tell exactly what part that is, but those look like lines in the casting, which is normal, they do not look like real cracks that have opened up.

So,
Ultra-gray
or
JB Weld

I can agree with either.
They both have pro's and con's.
I have no plans to do much, if anything, to it anytime soon.
