can it be fixed

So I have a 347 stroker that I just bought with AFR heads morso oil pan and some more that i can't remember. So where the distributor sits is broken around where the hole it goes in. Is this a liability if it stays like that?? Also can it be fixed?

I'm 99% sure you'll need a whole new block. If it could be fixed. My guess it would all have to come apart down to bare block.

Actually you good. That's what it's suppose to look like. Just took mine out of the 331 stroker motor I bought and it's like that too.

Yeah how is it fixed. Is it fine the way it is. Because mine broke the same way. Why would I take the chance for it to happen to another block.

How the heck did it happen? Screw to tight on the distributor? There isn't a lot of other things that I can think that would do it

Oh okay I figured it was a misunderstanding. I'm just feeling the problem you have now. I think we're okay but going to check with one other guy this week. I believe those are like that.

Okay thanks. Even if it broke I think it's still fine and if so that chunk of metal would have to go somewhere and I haven't seen it.

Took them to a machine shop today and it can't be fixed. There broke and it's pretty common. The guy told me he's actually had them break just moving around the shop

Okay well I just got done leaving mine friends house and his block is the exact same thing too. I think it won't hurt nothing. I will check with my buddy this weekend and see what he says. If there all doing this. It has to be okay to keep running it. Going to happen to another one ASAP.

We are 100% okay to go. It is not broken at all. I went and looked at 10 bare blocks at a motor builders shop. All the same. He said there molded like that. Also talked to 2 other guys and they said thats how they are from factory.
