It's just above the water pump.

I have to find another block, and it will not be an economic job (a good block,gaskets kit, rings, bearings ecc)

I can't understand one thing: how an engine block can crack in this way??? How???
My car it's all original, no tuning, no races, ordinary maintenance always performed...... :cry: :cry: :cry:

In these days i'll post some pics.

I'm going to sleep with tears in my eyes...goodnight

This is a documented problem with our engines. The casting is too weak [thin] at that corner.

I was looking around here in the forum and....yes...it's a known problem... :cry:
