Has anyone ever fixed a burned exhaust port? I have a block with a port that will not kept a gasket in it very long. I was thinking about blasting the port clean, then brazing up the port to replace the metal, putting the block on a surface grinder to level the surface of the intake/exhaust ports. Then using a milling machine to cut the step for the gland back in the block. Anyone ever had to fix one like this? Thanks, Dan

Dan,i had a worn out port that had been blowing by a long time ,it was like this when i bought the car,Ron Miller machine in Ohio rebuilt my engine and somehow installed what looks like hardened valve seats in the block to replace the worn ports,i don't know how they did it but you could call them and they would tell you.Robert Carden may do this also.

A temporary fix would be to braze up the manifold to give more surface for gasket contact beyond the worn block area. Would'nt have to pull the block, and would be as effective.
