Cracked Block

I have acquired a '51 fire truck that has a cracked block. I have no means of trailering it to where it needs to go (about 9 hour drive). The truck runs and drives, is it possible to put a "band-aid" on for a long haul? and what would I use/do?

Re: Cracked Block

Where is the crack? Is it on a water jacket or an oil gallery??

Re: Cracked Block

How big is the crack? I guess engine is R.S but 900 kl is too far I guess you'd be better off hireing a truck or trailor and bringing it home that way...
Being 51 would that be an old Y block ???
