    Did you preheat the head before welding? Argon or mix?

    As long as you are filling it up with Hard Block anyway. I wonder if it would be better to hole saw 3 or 4 holes in the outside of the water jacket to get a better shot at filling all the nooks and crannies?

  28. Nice repair job, disappointed to learn this happened after all the beautiful craftsmanship on the first build. I hope the rebuild is going to do the job for you. I'm looking to hear it run.
