I would like to see the original block's pitted head studs as I would probably use that block instead of this repaired one.

Why?, because for a block to need that sort of repair it has experienced something very nasty and extreme. Why take the risk, considering they haven't even fixed it properly as missing the bearing shell notch. BTW: If you do use this repaired block, don't grind the bearing shells to remove the locating lug, but simply use a dremel and create the locating notch in the block.

Also on second look at that repaired block the repair is not even square with the block => I think it is either needs to be trashed or repaired properly. If you can return for a refund, that is what I would do
