Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Cracked block update 2

My replacement rebuilt motor had a crack between #2 and 3 that I could not fix it.

After a lot of discussion, guidance, etc. on this forum, I contacted the guy that sold it to me and he quickly offered to do an exchange.
We did that today and I have already started to install the new one.

For those who know who he is, I need to report that he was a gentleman about the whole problem and went out of his way to make sure everything was OK.
For those who don't know who he is, there are many Model T people have a high level of ethics that don't exist in the general population.
I believe that as a "general rule" I can trust the regulars on this forum.

Although this experience was a pain, I must admit that I learned a lot more about my T and it gave me an opportunity to work closely with my son.

I need to remind myself to look at the silver lining. :-)

Hats off to the man who stood behind his work. Sorry you had to pull your engine back out, but sometimes things go that way. All model T blocks I work on are pressure tested to 40 psi. Many fail, some I can repair. I hope your son treasures his time with you like I do with my dad.
