repair battery case?

Hi, I dropped the battery from my garden tractor and it landed on a concrete floor. A small section of the bottom corner of battery case broke away. All the acid drained out of that end cell, but the other cells seem to stay full. My question is - there is a "glue" that will mend this "plastic" battery case. Epoxy and polyurethane come to mind, but I'm hoping someone has done this before and knows what will work, and will stand up to battery acid. Thanks for any ideas- Steve

I would buy a new battery. Those things aren't really made to be repaired.

$30 battery could drain the acid onto the input shaft of a $400 or more transmission and get inside... seen several transmission pulley rotted out by just a small amount of seepage from a battery, so I can only imagine what actual leakage would do. Some dollars are better off spent.
