    Cracked Head on 2003 F-12X ideas?

    Any ideas of what would have caused this head to crack? I suspect a freeze crack but don't understand why this area would be holding water. The crack is at the number four cylinder between the water jacket and timing chain housing causing it to put water into the oil.

    If you are talking about the head in Detroit Lakes, do you thing it's repairable?
