would it be a good idea to sell the top half of my engine...do people even care to buy it?

heads and rods are good, but bottom is no good

My 929 heads sold for $5 on ebay. I still have the rest of my engine. I could not believe they went so cheap. My engine case is cracked so all the internals and heads are fine. People just don't have the $.

That looks to me like a cracked case is all you have. I would imagine the internals in upper and lower are ok.

It looks like it'd be possible to repair it.
What do the red and green lines indicate?

I'd try building it up with an epoxy or welding it first.
There's nothing wrong with your oil pan though is there?

First you need to burn the oil out of the metal with a torch - being very careful not to melt the aluminium. Form it up with some plastic and build it up with Devcon or JBWeld. Sand it back into shape and file it flat for the stator cover surface. Worth a try at least. If that doesn't work then I'd try welding it up.
The oil pan bolts onto the bottom of the lower crankcase, it's a seperate cover just like the stator cover and clutch cover.
