If I have hairline cracks, between the valve seats on a cylinder head, is it scrap?

^^As I'm reading this post you two have the exact same post count, kinda weird.

Look at the bright side, it gives you a good reason to upgrade.

just a thought, what about getting new seats put in, may actually machine out the cracks...

but probably only worth it if the head is of some special setup/porting.

It can be reapired.... but the cost is often more than the value of the head!

So really its scrap!
