Do you think this is going to be a problem? As I was cleaning up the block for inspection I noticed a weld between the water jacket and head bolt. There is more meat between the water jacket and head bolt on this side. If yo look close you can see the size of the water port before. From what it looks like will this be a problem? I also found 1 heli coil on the other side in one of the head bolts also. What do you think??????

that bolt hole in the 3rd pic doesn't look to have much in the way of threads in it. You really married to that block? I wouldn't start with something that rough unless there were no choice. Like a matching numbers Vette or something.
