Thanks Sketchl,
As Italcarlos points out the chamfers are fine. So perhaps it is salvageable.

Who did the work on your block - removing studs etc is way way beyond my pay scale.

In the end anything is fixable but not necessarily economic (a bit like my entire project &#128514. 75 engines are getting hard to find unless you want to buy the whole car! Perhaps I will let it sit on the shelf for a few years for my next (Giulia Super) project
Cheers
John

Happy to google - do you know what it was called or who did it?

Simply googling “porcelain coatings” is just going to go wrong very quickly

The engine block and head work including stud replacement, crank machining, head shaving, valve and guide work, balancing,.......etc was done by https://balmainengineering.com.au/ in Sydney.

As for the engine coater, he’s one of those old school chaps who works for a race team and does this on the side with no web links or willingness to share his know how, unfortunately! Plus I utilise Evans waterless coolant to eliminate any further corrosion.
