Spankdaddy,

These cracks are from the block freezing in cold weather. I would not try to fix this because when you tighten the head bolts these cracks will pull apart and leak. I understand you want to keep the block but it is not worth throwing money at, just to have it leak at a later time causing more ruined parts and more down time. Junk it and find another block.

Sorry
Scholman
