I posted a thread here about a truck I found ('82 3/4 4x4 6.2) Well looks like Im getting it for dirt cheap. As I stated on the other thread I said that it had a striped starter bolt hole. Well upon further review there is a piece broke of the block not striped like the guy said. Anyways for $300 I still want to get it for my futer tow rig. So the question is can it be welded back on (he still has the broken piece) and if so can it be done with the engine in the truck? Or if I have to go to another engine all together will a gas engine bolt up to the tranny. I would like to keep the 6.2 but if I can't fix the block I don't have another one to replace it and 6.2's are not plentyfull around here.
