I purchased a 2007 Acura TL with front end damage on a Copart salvage auction. Long story short, the flange on the engine block where the water pump mounts broke free of the block. Not a big chunk, but big enough that there is nothing for the water pump bolts to catch and no chance of a water-tight seal. Not sure if this was due to a collision or when the timing belt broke. Unfortunately I have no history of the catastrophe.
Is this repairable via welding or am I looking at a new block/engine?
