Default Cracked block and Block fill questions

I am just about over this dam truck... no idea how it would do this but the block in my dually has a horizontal crack in it halfway between the oil pan and the soft/freeze plug.. not sure if it is even possible to do a partial fill while the motor is in the truck but it has removable plugs that expand when you tighten the bolt so that is the easy part. I have never done anything like that or if it will even work but here is a picture of the crack. The truck has sat a while and barely has 3k miles on a fresh rebuild from midwest diesel and auto with R&R rods and everything else but a block fill.

Are there any suggestions of how to do this with the motor in the truck because i cant pull the motor out at this time because i have no room in my shop at work to do it and the weather is to chity to work on it outside. Or is this just a dumb idea? Or is the block junk by now and not worth it?

The bolts that are through the silver washer are the plugs i was explaining in the op. There is a npt plug to the bottom left and an oil pan bolt in the bottom of the pic.

Drill a hole at each end of the crack and weld it?

Jake, that blows! I would think you could use some block filler, but I am only guessing.
