I recall the Belzona discussion a while back. Not really interested in that process with all the steps & cost to a finished repair. I know B & C bodies use Bendex brake systems. So are these aftermarket " A, B, C" ...

Hello all, Does anyone have any tips on fixing these corroded holes in my aluminum engine block? Sounds like Belzona is the thing to use. How do I clean up the metal on the inside? https://i.imgur.com/SejsoL2m.jpg https://i.imgur.com/YyIFqYDm.jpg https://i.imgur.com/SSt1BJmm.jpg

... authority on whether this can realistically be fixed; my advice here is just a semi-educated guess: I would probably want to try a cold repair (Belzona) rather than a hot repair (welding) because localised heat will warp stuff.

... If it's just being caused by corrosion of the block's gasket surface, you can thoroughly clean the surface, build it up with the right grade of Belzona , have it milled flat, and put it back together. Once you put it all back together, you'd do yourself a large favour to switch to waterless ...

... a different carburetor. If I wanted to give it a serious try, I might have a go with some kind of heavy-duty industrial epoxy compound like one of Belzona's. See threads here , here , here , here , and here .

I have used Belzona and it most definitely isn't sprayed on. :wink: This would be an interesting use of it for sure. When cured, in my experience, it is very gritty and has a texture to it. You would need to have it machined or ...

Dan I didn't quite get the hub repair spray on stuff, Belzona, can it be used on a spindle than chucked up in a lathe turned to correct size as well? I vividly imagine it can. It's a family of very-heavy-duty, epoxy-metal compounds (think JB Weld on ...

Apparently their build was "designed" to stand up to positive pressure. The Idea behind the top deck was to ...

... Hopefully the cylinder bores are very accurately aligned with respect to the head fasteners along the production life of the engine. The Belzona almost certainly has its own thermal expansion coefficient. They just claim no shrink on curing. Hopefully they have specs on that and it would ...

... on further reflection it will cause more problems than that. Think about the greater mass of filled epoxy on the thrust side of the cylinder bank. Belzona 1121: 68 ppm/degree C Aluminum (middling figure): 23.6 ppm/degree C Iron (pearlitic): 12.0 ppm/degree C
