    Default 350ql port engine crack

    In a 30 Catalina ,1973 Chris craft,the port engine has a crack in the valley of engine block
    welding has been attempted ,but unsuccessfull
    i have looked at "stitching " options but understand that heat from weld may have changed the composition of the cast iron,and therefore would not work.
    any ideas to repair this milkshake maker,Roger
