    I am in the middel of converting a vertical shaft lawn mower engine to a horizontal, I have done this a few times in the past, but this is the first time using an engine that has a breather in the case. I do not own a welder so I was wondering how I could go about sealing this 5cm dia hole?

    This is a major change that you want to do. Theoretically it looks simple, but it needs a proper check and supervision. Contact some professional company before further going into it.

    A little too small to see much, a larger pic would help but,

    I'd say, "45gal drum bung", one to thread it, the other to install.
