I appreciate all the info fellas butYou guys forget that i said that this is temporary. It just needs to get me bye for a few weeks and im not going to put a couple hundred dollars into a block when i already have an offer for a free block to replace it with. I have to much money into this already. The plan for this truck after jim buys it will more than likely require a teardown anyway and then a complete block fill or a different block. So think of it as a emergency patch job on the side of the road. I just need it to stop leaking for a few weeks so that it doesn't make a mess where i park it every night. I wont be driving it home for the holidays. Ill be barrowing my girlfriends awd escape to do that.

I like this idea for a quick temp fix. I don't think you can bypass the heater core this time of the year though. Not unless you are a polar bear.

Andy knows... lol.. that is why he said it was the wrong time of the year... i actually do have valves plumbed into my core lines anyway. Been like that prior to me buying it. i can run it for a few heat/idle cycles with it blocked off... ole girl has been sitting for a few days now so i cracked the fumoto valve open on the oil pan just to make sure its not leaking internally. Lol... not a bit of coolant came out so if it is leaking internally then it is way slower then it is on the outside since there is a puddle under the truck.. lol.. fml....

A cure:
My vote is for brass; it's all about the metallurgy. Malleability and low tensile strength will allow brass to tolerate the thermal movement of the cast. Minimizing stress at the bond will reduce the potential for cracking. I will add, I have seen and done more brass welded cast than any other filler metal. When I was a lad, my father brazed a diesel block in an antique tractor. It's now 40 some years later and I have it. It's still holding.

A bandaid:
A few years ago, the head gasket in my 18 year old winter beater started weeping antifreeze. I dumped half a tube of Bar's Leaks in it and keep the degas bottle cap lose. I check occasionally for green snow when I back out the drive way, none yet.

I ended up just drilling, taping, and plugging the ends of the crack and put some stop leak in it. As far as i know. It hasnt dripped on the ground yet. Just a small gray line out of the crack down the block so far.
