Started to pull the sleeves on my B when I noticed that the head mating surface has cracks between eack cylinder and sleeve. I have heared of folks brazing the cracks and filing down the area prior to replacing new sleves and not having any trouble with the engine. I'm not too sure about this and would like some input on the idea...might be better off finding another block. Thanks, Dave

Would you believe it is a rare block that you find that does not have those cracks and they have had those cracks for decades. Or in other words that is common and as long as they are not the size of the grand canyon the head gasket will seal them just fine

That is normal cracking, the head gasket will seal them up. You will have trouble finding a block without those cracks.

Wow! Thanks fellas. Thats a load off my mind. The cracks are just wide enough to catch your fingernail on if you were to drag it across. Thanks again, Dave

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule.
