As pdq67 stated, find a welding place to furnace weld cast iron. The talent is what you are paying for. My uncle and cousin did cast iron repair, ie., cylinder head repair, and later did alot of farm implement dealers' transmission cases and engine block repair in the Midwest.
Another alternative is to give Callies Performance, Fostoria, OH a call and see if they market, or know another, who sells oversized (OD)bearing shells for the block. Then have the block line-bored to match the larger shells. You could probably even get the ID reduced for the OE steel crank to keep it.
Or get SBC 350 bearing spacers for a 400 CID block. This would require boring the mains for SBC 400 CID bearing OD.
