Did you have water in that cylinder?
If you have not cleaned of the bore, usually a crack will have a water trail.
Lets hope it's not a crack.

Yes, looks like a cracked cylinder. Also a bit of shirt scuffing going on, as evidenced by the vertical marks.

There was no evidence of antifreeze/water in any cylinders. At any rate my options are reassemble the way it is,(It was running when taken apart, antifreeze in oil, but intake gaskets and bolts were trashed) or leave it apart for a year or two until i get the funds. Presently unemployed for last 6 months. I will reassemble for time being, hoping to at least make the car shows, for 2014.
If the block is shot i will probably opt for a sbc 383 crate at 410hp down the road

"There was no evidence of antifreeze/water in any cylinders"

Then why is no.2 cleaner by far than the others??
Steam cleaned by the combustion of fuel-air-coolant... It won't heal itself with new gaskets.

Yeah your done. I do remember back in old days my dad would have engines dipped in a tank and filled with liquid glass? Or something like that he did it to a willis jeep and it ran like that for 10 years. Not sure if they still do that.

Yea Thats what i was hoping would not be the case. Unfortunately i will have to reassemble to move the car here and there, and will not be able to do anything for probably 2 years. Expensive paperweight i will have in the garage.

IDK how or if it would work with an internal crack such as yours,but,i've "fixed" a few external cracks such as from freezing by packing the crack with JB Weld,letting it fully cure & then using KW Block Sealer.I know you can't use the JB in your case tho.I had a 283 that froze & cracked the head.It had approx an 1/8" open crack.The guy is still driving it 4 yrs later.@ this point it couldn't hurt anything.It may provide you with @ least a temporary fix.Follow the directions exactly.It worx best on a clean cooling system,so,I usually run some flush thru 1st,then the KB with str8 water.Drain system,let it cure,then refill w/ a 50/50 mixture.
