      You can buy machinable nickel rod. My wife sells it at her auto parts store. Forney makes it.
      When I had the machine shop I've built up block corners and such with both nickel and 309 stainless. Used a plain old AC buzz box.
      Done half a hole dozens of times. Small block chevies get starter boss chunks broke off fairly regular in these parts.
      Back then I also brazed cracks and such on junkier cast with silicone bronze and used a cutting torch head. Prep, preheat, braze, post-heat, grind.
      Now days we build up cast usually with silicone bronze and tig.
      I don't seek out that work anymore but it still trickles in once in a while. mostly on inboard boat engines because we only weld on boats.
      Those old Ford blocks were pretty good metal, so it should weld nice

          Project suspended while I look to find a 58-60 junk block for a donor piece. If not I may just build a custom bell housing.
