Thanks, Josef. 

What were the symptoms of your cracks (low compression, etc.)?

One of mine was cracked at several places, mainly between plug hole and valves. I solved it with an aluminium head and put my good crackfree head on the shelf for display. Engine feels much stronger and no leaks between block and cylinder head (knock on wood). 

I heart laser welding could also work but haven`t tried so far. I have about 3 cracked heads around.

While we're on the topic ... 

I know the 100 heads are notorious for (at least) leaking between #2 and #3 cylinders--is this where they crack? Or, can you get a crack between intake and exhaust valves, or ...? 

What are the symptoms of a cracked head?
