Wow, a CRACKED girdle. [email protected] has a little mishap with his oil pan against a pothole and the pothole won. I was up for a challenge to repair it for him.





This block/girdle combo was painted and the paint ALWAYS wins if you try to weld it. New to clean the paint off before welding.



Had to grind all the paint away where I will be welding and I will be bolting the oil pan to the girdle to ensure it doesnt warp when welding.



Now I just need to weld it. :wow: Made sure to skip around when welding so it didn't warp too bad. Bolting it to the block and oil pan acted as a heat sink and immediately pulled the heat out to ensure that it didn't warp. We were able to reuse the bearings and avoid line honing which made life so much easier.

This whole process took about 2-3 hours.
