Yesterday I found Flathead block with heads and internals from local scrap metal yard. The first thing that I saw was cracked upper bellhousing. Anyway, I got pretty good deal and rescued it from there. If the block itsself is salvageable (I know, it's only a small hope), what about the bellhousing? Could the crack be repaired? What about the structural integrity after repair? I will try to make some pictures later, but the crack's lenght is about half or little less of the bell's witdh. I have pretty hard times to identify the year of the engine too - I haven't found any stampings or castings from the block itsself, only small "H" on top of bellhousing. The heads bear 9T casting mark, as I have read, those belong to before WWII manufactured 239 CID truck engine. I haven't found much info about blocks the heads were typically bolted on - I know, that 99T castings are pretty sought after because of higher nickel content and thicker bore walls. I guess the engine is made by Ford Germany, because I found "Zyl 1" marking on one head?
