Looks like metal fatigue, time and revs have taken their toll. 06 to 10 will go straight into the frame. EXC, SXF or XCF.

So the case is aluminum? Only the valve cover and side covers are magnesium? I think this could still be useful engine! Not just a intresting piece of junk at the garrage.
Im going to visit the machinist tomorrow.

My possibilities at the moment: Make a big ashtray from the engine case. Pay some money to welder/machinist to try TIG-weld it and possibly ruin it. Or.. use this wierd Techno Weld and try it myself. I have done gas welding before and this is very much like welding colmonoy on a steel shoe. I shall take my chances on this! If I fail.. I still have a chance with TIG.
