Hey guys, I need some input on this. I have been working on my K181 and notice a couple of things odd about it. My biggest concern is the image posted below. Is this a cast iron patch on the block and if so what is the verdict? New block or is it safe. If it is a patch I am both amazed at the size and disappointed at the possible need for a new block.

The other odd thing is the three bolts near the oil pan. I have not seen any reference to these on service manuals and obviously one of the screws is not original. The holes are tapped and appear factory. Any thoughts?

Ok guys thanks. After all of the work I am putting into this thing I am leaning towards getting another block. It looks like Kohler blocks are out of this world price wise. Anyone know who has a good used block, short block, or engine that is a 1964 model. I have tried real hard to keep it authentic.
