Re: Need Volvo MD6 Parts
It isn't something you could do. It would require a metal shop to design and cast a "spacer" where on one side the water holes and bolt holes align with said holes on the block, while on the other they align with said holes in the new part. Channels lead from the coolant hole on one side to the other. With all the MD6 series still running they would sell a grunch of them over time, and the design cost should be amortized accordingly.
It sounds to me like your only other choices are to ante up the 1.5K or else replace your engine. Both sound pretty unpalatable to me.
