I received a picture of the head - the crack is to the point where if 
it grows any further there will be definite sealing issues on #2 and 
probably #3.  I like this suggestion - a hole to stop the propagation 
and silver solder to seal it back up.  I'll have to remember that one!

When I went through the "cracked head" issue (mine wasn't 
repairable), someone suggested "stitching" which is a series of 
threaded plugs run through the crack.  That's the only other fix that 
comes to mind.

Cheers, Tony Drews
