Urraco Engine Block Crack Repair
During the course of the rebuild we found a small crack in the middle of the block. The crack is at the base of the main oil way. Its impossible to weld the crack becuase the heat would probably distort the block and the crank would no longer seat correctly. The very clever engineers at Modus engineering near Tunbridge Wells decided to stitch the crack. If you’ve never seen this process I have attached some pictures of the crack and the stitiching process.
