I sold a pristine rebuild head with an entire valve train for $250 on eBay
last month.  I had 85 "watchers" and one bid.  There seems to be no money in
these heads.  I sold a 100 6 galley head for the same price earlier.  The cost
to have them re-welded would be about the same as buying a used set w/o

I had a crack in my head welded as well,
pretty much the same experience, 
the local machine and welding shops said
there was one guy locally who could 
do it, and it was described as anywhere
from an craft to a black art that 
few could master, and I do remember part of
the explanation of doing it 
right was bringing things up to the right

I asked the guy who did it if it would be weak or I should worry
about it, 
he said he wouldn't do the work if it wasn't going to last. 
Although I 
didn't keep the car real long after the work was done, it
certainly seemed 
to hold up fine for the time I had it.

It can be done if
you find the right guy to do it, who by the way before you 
ask either closed
his shop or moved away or both since that time.

I would think the value of an
uncracked head would be significantly more 
than $200 even for a friendly
local deal, maybe twice that or more?  used to 
be E-bay was a good place to
check for prices, but it seems like more and 
more it is full of people
listing the same thing over and over again for 
ridiculous prices, plus cheap
stuff from the Pacific Rim, and not so much 
hobbyists selling to each other.
