The LOWER crack is what caused the upper crack. OR to put it another way: had the lower crack not existed then the upper crack would have never happened. NOT visa-versa either.
SO does the "brand new starter" fit the round recess just fine or was it a very tite fit????? Is there an obstruction inside of the transmission housing that is causing the nose cone to bind????
Cracking the block like that is rather odd. Usualy if there is any binding when trying to fit a starter then the mounting ears of a starter will break off before any part of the block will crack break.
Did the engine backfire real hard when this happened???? U made no mention of a backfire.
ALSO. In the pic the bolt is still in the UPPER hole. Therefore are we to assume that the upper hole is not cracked both sides of the hole like the lower hole is cracked both sides.
