Block crack? Found a nice web site

Well my motor is on the stand and I keep looking at all the mounded glue over who knows how bad of a crack and I keep getting tempted to take a grinder to it.

I did a web search and found an outfit that sells stitching kits and pins.

No I am not in any way associated with them and have never bought from them so you are on your own here.

I will say that they give lots of info while many sites on stitching try to hide the "magic" of the process.

I have seen stitched heads fail but I would think on a block where there is no real stress, it would be a good fix.

Worth a look anyway as they have pictures of the repair process from start to finish.

It doesn't appear too low buck to do.

Here's a pic on a 9N block. It can be done successfuly on a cylinder head, but a fair amount of skill is necessary.

I have had this technique used on a cylinder head and it also didn't work. But I agree that in a block it will probably work fine, as you said it has very little pressure and stress on it compared to the cylinder head. I had the work done in the combustion chamber on the head, so that's probably the most likely part to continue to leak due to the high pressures. Definelty worth a try on a block.

When Tyman says type in the full URL, he means every "http:" and every "//". Won't work otherwise. Also, if there is nothing in the link title box it still won't work. Could be something as simple as "click here". Try it again. Once you've done it right once, you'll never mess up again.
