My old Bolens is starting to use oil, so I tore it down for a rebuild. It has run perfectly for 45 yrs, still runs good but is smoking more all the time.
My problem is where a head bolt goes in the block, it has a piece chipped out. Looks to have been that way for a long time. It is not leaking, the head gasket looks good.
I am thinking about building up the area with JB weld to add support.
What do you think? BTW, glad I found this forum, it looks great!
