You might check into an old-school technique of cold stitching. Not sure if it
works on a head, but have seen it done on blocks. Not cheap and intensive work,
but it can recover a block.

Subject: Re: [Fot] TR head cracks
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.B I like this suggestion - a hole to stop the propagation
and silver solder to seal it back up.B 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.B That's the only other fix that
comes to mind.
