You can maybe clean them, would require a lot of elbow grease and careful use of corrosion removal/chemical cleaner to get the blocks back to its former condition.

I did this to the danger den but since the main water block was copper there was no way removing the oxidation on the copper itself unless they were re-machined.

The rubber seal is also another problem and most likely impossible to source.

Block 1. Damage retaining the copper slug O ring
Block 2. Damage retaining the outer O ring. Like 3mm inner wall.

Enough to let the O ring loose tension. ie leak.

TIG weld it possible " in a non water channel area first as practice "
Or a metal mend/ bond product used for engine blocks, heads.

That's research to do soon...........

I've used Loctite (can't remember the exact type number but it was designed for marine purposes so waterproof) for these sort of things.

TIG welding could get messy. Is the water block copper or nickel of some sort?

Alloy of some type. Solder capillary flow it .....heat though
Blocks are quite bad. If it were NOT near the seals I'd give repair a go.

Looking on the net similar size block & fit under the blue anodized covers
