Last starter change out on the trusty 400 (75 vintage, no emmisions thank u) found outboard hole for starter craked up the side in the thread area (verticle in the threads) crap! I've heard of this but thought of urban legend only stories. All that porting and polishing on the heads, all the fun stuff, Edlebrock intake, roller rockers, ARP rod bolts carefully streatched to torque, I'm ready to break down here, really... Got stick welder and seen a little cast iron stick rod usage, should I?Then re tap? Or is welder pro really needed here? Cripes, wife will freak when loading this block in the Buick.
