see picture.
I have just the valve chamber cracks depicted by J & M Machine. A machinist said that these would be problematic for pinning as he would be drilling into the cylinder. Since there is no water pressure, could the problem possibly be fixed with the newer block sealer products such the Fiber-Lock stuff made by K & L?
