Saving a Centaur

Saving a Centaur
My son and I recently rescued a '49 Centaur M from the junkman. The motor had frozen and the whole side of the block was shattered, but it still ran. We pulled the engine and my son, who can weld the break of day, burned a whole box of rods on it without any luck. The metal was just too rusty. Our next idea was to bolt a plate over the cracked area. Jim, my son, jokingly suggested a plexiglas plate, and I thought 'why not?'The block was flat from front to rear, with a slight outward curve at the bottom. We cut a 6 by 18 in. hole in the block, and cut and curved a metal plate with windows to cover it. Then we cut a plexiglas plate, laid it on the metal plate and placed it in the oven at 350 degrees(Sorry, Mom) until it melted just enough to curve to the steel plate, then bolted it over the hole. It took several tries, but it worked! It really turns heads at shows when you fire it up and folks can see the water swirl through the motor!
