I called yesterday about a 1984 k30 for sale. The man selling it told me up front that it has a broken starter mount (ear he called it) and has been waiting for a welder who specialises in mending blocks to fix it for a couple weeks now. he said he bought it this way from a farmer, and didn't know how it broke but that it is common with 6.2's. He also has purchased a new starter because the old one was shot. He makes his living rebuilding rearends and manual trannys, and has a couple k30's for sale. My question is this common to break the starter mount? And can blocks be repaired this way or should it just be avoided? thanks in advance.
