i had antifreeze under the engine when this car was together. i couldn’t find where it was coming from but thought it must have been the weep hole in the water pump. well, i figured it out. there is a bad spot in the casting on the intake on the bottom side. it is a very small leak but before i cleaned it you could see where it had been leaking. i cleaned the area with glass bead and then put it in my friends ultrasonic cleaner. i took it to two differant weld shops and both told me the same thing. they are telling me that the way this looks it would be best not to weld it. i don’t know anything about welding but i thought this would be no problem for them to do. both places recommended that i use a high temp epoxy called devcon. i have used the stuff before on ATV engines and works great but not sure i want to go that way on this. any recommendations?
