Is there a good source for a '47 WC engine blocks.? I can't seem to get mine to quit leaking. I've had it to a machine shop and they have drilled and plugged a few cracks. The bridges between the cylinders have been repaired along with new O rings on the sleeves.
I'm looking for another block.

Do you know where it is leaking..?

Is it from a crack between the sleeves at the bottom of the water jacket..?? If it is, drain the cooling system, pull the core plugs (freeze plugs) and put a good pint, or even a quart of Non-Hardening Permatex in the bottom of the water jacket..be SURE it coats completely around all the sleeves (Clean water jacket).. An old AC mechanic many years ago gave me that tip and it works.. Ron..

WC and WD blocks are the same. I have 1 or 2 of them laying around that might work for you but where you are matters since they is not light

Ya your a long ways from me I am in Missouri the Lake of the Ozarks area. If you have it flushed and empty a good sealer is liquid glass type but you need to have the system clean and not antifreeze in it

Today's Featured Article - Search For Spares - by Anthony West (UK). Following on from the aquisition of the old Fordson F, I was very much in need of spares.
