    So i bring it to work, triple seal the shit out of it so nothing gets in, and media blast the area. What do you guys think. Housing defect, crack, shut up and run it. If this brand new rebuilte motor implodes because of this SC i will loose it.

    The side i though had the crack looks good.

    The other side looks a bit iffy.... Me thinks some NDE needs to be done to make sure it isn't a crack.

    If it looks shitty I'll paint the whole thing.

    That seam came right out. Could have left well enough alone I guess. But who would have thought?!

    Thats got to be the cleanest red s/c I have seen in years!
    Usually they start to corode under the red powder coat and flake off in massive pieces and look horrible.
    Yours was probably the very early stage of a bit of corosion poking through.

    Yeah it definitely has a little corrosion. A can of ford red is close enough for me. Its already bolted onto the motor...
