David-
There is a 13' block closer to home than you know! Call Bill and negotiate! I'm pretty sure he still has the USA block that I bought home from Arizona some years ago.

Since 13 blocks don't grow on trees, don't dare throw it out. Someone may be desparate enough to buy it and then have the repair done by fusion welding. Midwest Cylinder Head Service can probably do it for a hefty price. I think their motto is "there ain't nothin we can't fix".

Normal people would consider welding it but i know someone that might just patch over it with newtech (a kind of polyester panel filler reinforced with metal and carbon fibres) Not saying it would be a good idea though, Just saying
