I need help with a cracked block. I did not drain it correctly for the winter and have a couple of small cracks in the block. Any help would be great.

I had a similar problem and I used a product that I think was called Liquid Weld and it held fine. I was worried about the heat build up but it has been several years. Might not work as well if it is a crack in a structural part but it could be worth a try.

Not sure if this is what you are referring to, but here is a link to this product:

I've used something called "liguidweld" ? and had good results. The key is to get the surfaces clean which is tough ince it is usually a crack. I ground out a "V" so I could get down to bare metal. But I had to paint it afterwards to stop the rusting. I don't think you have to paint the Marinetex. Laughing
