I bought this Z6 block fairly cheap. I knew that there is some grinded area on it, but because it was all covered in dirt, I could not notice tiny spot, filled with silicone sealant. As I started cleaning the block, I poked a small hole in the block, AFAIK straight into oil passage... I don't think, that it is a huge, unfixable problem, and it can be welded up, but what could possibly go wrong, with this kind of fix? Need some opinions on it. Really don't want to look for another block, because these are becoming quite rare in my country...

That isn't a tiny spot!

If you get it welded just check the deck with a straight edge after.
I will! This block is goingt to be freshly decked and bored.

Well, I guess there is nothing too much to worry about. Thanks!

I'm sure you can drill a hole and tap it, with some actual threads; it would seal with a bolt.

welding that up will work best.

heat soak the block, or torch the area several inches out, to remove any and all moisture and oil from the aluminum.

aluminum is porous, and holds moisture and oil very well.

You could easily JB weld it, or get the aluminum welded up.

Just JB weld a small 1" square piece of aluminum sheet over it.

You might even be able to drill it, and tap it, and install a plug and JB weld that in.


There's no pressurised oil there, so it doesn't need to be perfect.
