You might find someone willing to TRY to weld it, but most likely, from your description, not.

I'm afraid your only realistic options are to block that cylinder off, or try to find one used somewhere.

Sorry, but good luck to you.

-the part that broke is cast iron

-it has a like reed valve and components inside

-it broke all of it on one cylinder

-there is like a spacer block between the piston on the engine that is fine

-what happened to it is when shutting machine off it dieseled or backfired wanted to keep running that is when this happened

Probably unobtainable except by cannibalism.

Did the custom head crack or just a gasket?

If gasket, you can make one.
