Hello
In the area of the motor block where the coil bracket mounts, there seems to be a block repair done. 
OR is this normal?
I don't have another block to compare it with.

Here are three pictures of my 2A, might be able to see what you are looking for. It looks some different, yours doesn't really look repaired, maybe just an abnormality in the casting.

1949 Ford 8N
Half the distance takes you twice as long.

Could be a casting flaw, but could also be an old school style repair of a crack, which was to drill and tap a hole at the end of the crack, plug it with a bolt, and then grind and braze to seal the crack.

Scratch off some paint and see if you find brass.

Jim,

   I haven't a clue of that divet, but even tho butt-ugly, and the engine runs happily down the road, you're good-to-Go !

   You could try sending a photo to Jimmy Strauss through his webpage, and ask him to have Norman give you an opinion. I am sure they see lots of strange stuff come into their shop.
