Cracks Showing

Any cylinder head cracks can be welded, and many claim they can do it; but in reality most claiming to be able to weld heads cannot. If you consider having the head welded, check the abilities of those welding the head, they will need compatible welding rods, not the all purpose type, and they will need to be coded welders to ensure they prepare the head properly.
