Unless something has changed, this tells me plug is/was fine.

Plug does not cause a lean condition.
Look for air leak, adjustment problem, clogged jet, faulty float/needle.
Gas loses a lot of it's volatility after 30 days.

Have used it on outboard motor crankcases.
Can't find a more 'worst case scenario' than that.
Four stroke crankcase pressures far less demanding than 2 stroke.
Never had a problem. Been there....

If it were my engine I think I would replace the snapped case.
If that's not possible, use the old case "as is" and gob on the JB Weld. Fully clean area with alcohol before applying the stuff.

Have you figured out the problem as far as assembly goes?
If all is correct, case should just fall together without brute force.
Was this part of case difficult to separate to begin with?

Guess I'm just lucky then. I've owned more engines than I can count.
Only had a rod break once after (unknowingly) losing an oil seal at 6k (+/-) rpm.
