    Hello,
    Trying to help a chap out here: a piece broke off his engine block - part of a threaded housing for a water temperature sender (see pix).
    I would imagine this is repairable by the right person? If so, does he have to remove the engine innards (piston, crankshaft etc)?
    Thanks GM10Broken1.jpg GM10Broken2.jpg

    That could be brazed with TIG and silicone bronze in position
    Build the lug up then re drill and tap

    Yep, easy repair that ! Just dont get it too hot- cast has a nasty habit of cracking when it cools down !
