the picture to the left shows the crack. The red liquiod is where and how the crack looks like and they used a white power or something in that matter to do this task.

EMPIRE0007,this is my .02 cents on this.[1] you did buy USED ENGINES at a cheap price.[2]we don,t have all the facts on who did what with them after you got them.[3] if in fact the blocks are cracked,why was their no water or watermarks in the cylinder?the red in the cylinder is a step in dy checking for cracks,the red does not indicate a crack,if you ever used the product,you would know this,in one of your posts you said you don,t know what you are looking at.[4]it does not matter if he spent the money after you paid him,IT IS HIS MONEY.[5].mr brosovich has been in buisness for a long time,so i don,t think your threat of a lawsuit worries him,but probibally angerd him,[just for the record,i don,t know mr brosovich].if the blocks are junk,don,t buy used up ones to replace,get new ones,have your guy put the engines back togerther,you will still have way less money in the engines than they are worth.like i said,just my .02 cents worth.

That says something about the work Comp Machine does if tired engines can push a Skater 147mph.

They have my vote!

That sure gives them bragging rights

actually you are mistaken, first you clean the surface, then you spray the die, then you use the die remover then you spray the white developer. which is what we see. the developer leaches the die out of any crack or porosity in the metal.

The picture appears to be showing circumferential cracks.
