    cast your eyes on this guys

    thought i would pull head to check on wash after 6 hours,

    wash still dont look clever.

    and cast your eyes on mag cylinder does it look like a hair line crack to you as well..

    thought i would post to show you guys before i wet and dry suspect crack to see if it goes through but i hope its just a deep mark but even if it is i have no idea where from as i treat this thing like my baby...

    looks like its time to pull the engine if its not a scratch

    Dude,
    I don't care if that IS a scratch... because that is the tale tell sign of a crack about to happen. I've NEVER seen one like that before.
