Blast clean it to remove the carbon and pre heat to around 500 deg to help cook out any remaining carbon.
I TIG repairs like that using NickelCast 55 stick rods with the flux removed , makes a very nice ,durable repair ,especially on old castings.
I've used this method for blocks , heads and manifolds.
