Cast iron is a tough repair, even when special measures are taken, the repair area will never be the same.  Keep an eye out for a replacement.   For small items like exhaust and brackets, heat it up with a torch, stick weld with nickel rod, and bury in dry sand for several hours.   Not sure if that would work on a big item like a block or head, those need an oven

I checked on getting a couple of log exhaust manifold that were cracked repaired.

The owner of the shop pretty much told me to buy new aftermarket it will be cheaper than repairing.

 well once again living in a small town has its drawbacks sometimes. I do have a good machine-speed shop here that I have used before and the owner has had 4 boats including one 70s boat. Because of the pandemic He had to sell his "hot box" and some other equipment to stay open ( So) He is most capable of fixing it but cant heat it up. I suggested that we build one out of firebricks but he would only pass the cost on to me. Stitching maybe a possibility but its expensive here--about $600.00. I have begun to search for a good used head every night and I am trying to find a farm store that works on tractors/cast iron that maybe able to do it. I have read that Volvo Penta used a alloyed block but can not find what the mix or metal may have been. So far as I know my head is a "special alloyed cast iron " Knowing the mix could help me find a solution if the carbon % is low enough. I did find a great looking head on E bay for only $200. plus 50 shipping and from a 70s aq130c/freshwater only-- but it was bought before I could get it. so Ill keep trying, I have all winter really to figure this out.

1977 GLASTRON CARLSON CVX20 W/ 460 FORD/BERKLEY JET - $5,500 (LONG LAKE)
https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/wsh/boa/d/sarona-1977-glastron-carlson-cvx20-460/7240478217.html

THIS IS A COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLED BOAT. THE OWNER BEFORE ME TOOK IT APART TO FIX A SOFT FLOOR AND THEN DECIDED TO TAKE DOWN FOR A COMPLETE RESTORATION. WHY? THE BOAT IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE THROUGHOUT. INTERIOR IS BEAUTIFUL AND ORIGINAL (9-10). THE GELCOAT ON THE BOTTOM IS PERFECT(10-10). ON TOP IS LIGHTLY FADED/HAZED BUT NOT ROUGH(7/8-10). MOTOR IS STOCK AND NEEDS A FRESHENING BECAUSE IT WAS PULLED APART FOR INSPECTION AND THEN SHELVED FOR A COUPLE YEARS (NO IDENTIFIED PROBLEMS). THE ENTIRE BOAT WAS TAKEN APART CAREFULLY WITH ALL ITEMS LABELED AND WRAPPED (EVEN THE INTERIOR). THE FLOOR AND STRINGERS WERE REMOVED BUT IN A WAY THAT THEY CAN BE USED AS TEMPLATES. I ORIGINALLY BOUGHT THE BOAT MOTOR AND TRAILER TO PUT THE TRAILER UNDER MY CVX20 OUTBOARD BUT HAVE DECIDED TO KEEP IT TOGETHER AS IT IS TOO NICE. EVERYTHING IS HERE! I AM NOT SURE IF I WANT TO SELL. DO NOT NEED TO. CHECKING THE WATER TEMP ON THE CARLSON FANS. IF YOU DO GLASS WORK (FLOOR) AND ARE INTERESTED IN GIVING ME A PRICE , CONTACT ME. THANK YOU DALE
