Have a cracked head and leaking coolant!! Crack initially started small, just below head bolt, and now is clearly visible and working its way to the plug well which fills up with coolant... After re torquing I now have a massive oil leak - pukes out while idling - at the rear of the head, drivers side. I figure if I need to replace the head gasket I should probably go ahead and replace the head as well. Any good, serviceable heads out there? Pacific NW area? Any leads appreciated. thanks,
Erin

Have you checked to see if a knowledgeable machine shop can weld and machine? May or may not be cheaper than finding another head, but it's probably worth asking. Bosch heads are relatively plentiful, and the Seattle area has Alfa-skilled folks.
