Default SD33T_Head's Cracked :(

As stated in my subject line my sd33t head has cracked all the way through which naturally is a problem.

Rick grindstaff has recommended possible repairing the head. Thoughts???

Also I'm open to anyone who has a head for sale.

If it's only cracked between the valves it's not worth it to repair it since they usually come right back out. I did see one years ago that was like this and still sealed and ran fine for a couple years until the engine was sold. If it's cracked all the way across then you'll need to source another head.
