A few years ago my father bought a used 2000 2.9 because he loved my 2001 T6. He only has about 80K miles on it. Unfortunately, his timing belt snapped and cracked the block. He is being told it is unrepairable. Has anyone had success repairing/welding a crack such as this? If not, can anyone suggest a source for a used engine near Cincinnati, OH. I've only been able to find two in the Cincinnati, OH area and they have a lot of miles for the price they are asking.
