Im looking at a FE block. I saw this and the seller says its been magnafluxed and hot tanked. I see a small chunk missing from the edge of the block. Would you still consider it worth it? Thanks so much just wanted to get a second opinion.

How much $ we talking? There are enough blocks out there that I wouldn’t wanna chance putting an engine together and have it fail. Just find another one....just a thought. I’m sure the experts can give you better facts about running that block.

It doesn't appear that the break is in the gasket sealing surface. My concern would be the possibility of a crack into the water jacket. I wouldn't take anybody's word on it being good, I also wouldn't want to spend my money having it checked out only to find out it's junk, especially on a $250 asking price.
