Umm.... don't do it again?..

I've done that myself, not breaking the case but heading off up some Forest Service road and winding up by myself up above the snow line trying to dig my bike out to turn around..lot's of fun LOL

Swapping the engines rather than fixing the one you have is a good idea if you are really confident that the "new" one is as good or better than the old one. Otherwise I'd get a gasket kit and grab parts off the wrecked one instead.
