Question Small Block Chevy starter bolt hole

Ready to assemble short block I find that the outer starter bolt hole has a piece of casting broke off. It's not much and It's in that 3/8 inch section where there are no threads. 383 stroker 9.8 comp, should I get It brazed or not worry.
Thanks in advance

How big of a piece? I doubt it will matter if the threads are all there. This section if I understand you right is for bolt location mainly and is not critical.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the reply 4 Jaw, the piece Is probably the size of your pinkie nail. And now that I read your reply It makes sense, the blank section before It becomes threads Is for aligning up the bolt. Thanks again.

If you use the block make sure to use the 3rd starter mount with it. I had to scrap a block because the starter wouldnt hold due to the outer hole being chiped. The bolt threaded but when torqued on would allow the bolt to move and the starter would throw its self far enough out of position to grind and not turn it over. Its no fun laying in snow tighting up a starter on a camaro. Id try to fix it before it breaks further or becomes a problem hope yours turns out better than mine.
