oh yeha got to be very very carful to not blow your block apart you cna only weld on it for like 2 seconds at a time or the block will crack even more cast holds lots of water and will pop and crack.

Uhhh no I didn't. I used marine tex epoxy, but even that has now cracked and leaking again. I'm just watching a few engines right now. I'll O-ring, stud, and valve spring it, then swap it into my truck. I'm thinking I'll take my cracked engine to the best welder I know and let him work his magic on it. Maybe P-pump it and drop it in a chevy.
