Visited a repair shop the other day and the owner, who happen to have multiple Healeys in the shop, asked a question. As we went to the back of the shop he uncovered a 3000 block that had several large cracks that ran fore and aft about ¼ inch from the edge of the head to block mating surface.
I studied it for awhile and responded that I had not seen this previously. It did appear that the block had been decked or milled to flatten the deck surface but there was no way to know how much material had been removed. The cracks definitely were deep enough to open the water passages in the block to the top of the block surface. The owner stated that the coolant leaked out from the joint between the head and block profusely and I could see why.
Has anybody else seen this before? Unfortunately I did not take a photo of the block.
