    250/260 heads cracking

    if you have had one crack please state which cylinder(s) had the crack. I think I know what is causing this but I need more data.

    Mine too but it is between 2 & 3 linking exhuast valves. Seen 5 so far.

    This is one of them......... These cracks are the ones that allow water into the oil. Hard to see and easy to verlook. This pic is of a bad one but Ive seen them leak with less visibilty.

    Mine cracked and filled engine with water. Dont know where exactly the crack was though as it was done under warranty.

    My head wasn't showing any performance loss. I stumbled across it when changing over to ferra valves.
