I've never once heard of an injection pump housing developing cracks, nor can I imagine how that could happen.

As unbelievable as it seems,i was totally surprised.Drove the car to Injection Pump Service(Bosch) company,here in Charlotte,the fella who's been there for over 25 years,mentioned having seen just a few of the IPs' with the crack similar to the one on mine.This is the one single bolt side of the IP (left side) and the alum. casting is less thick then the rest.Absolutely unbelievable and a pain since i'll have to remove IP and replace the bottom half.My other way out is to alum. weld professionally or have the IP rebuilt by this IP Service co.In the rebuild process the broken/cracked part is replaced(general procedure)!!.........Guys' come up some suggestions'!!!
