Re: freeze crack in inboard motorblock

I donot know how serious these cracks are. I have had one inline six cylinder motor with a bad crack to the out side water jacket. I took it to a metal shop and had the crack welded. I donot know if jbweld will hold or not.If you have a closed coolant system, One that cools by recirculating coolant through a heat exchanger you will lose coolant through the cracks and run hot.Depending on severity of cracks you might need a new engine block. Just my 2 cents worth, TG.
