Helped a neighbor replace the cracked block in his 1030. Found the crack in the upper counter bore of a cylinder when we were refinishing the counter bores. It could probably be fixed (expensive?). He intends to haul it to a scrapper next week unless someone is interested in it.

They extend from the lower edge of the upper counterbore down to the top of the lower counterbore. I am confident it will work. Still re-building it. Don't let him scrap that block!!
