Yes, they crack all the time, just overheat them one too many times or feed it too much ether! I have one head with 14 pins in it.

No. They had problems with drivers that lacked common sense who would overheat them or use too much ether. The problem was not with the tractor but with the loose nut behind the steering wheel. LOL!

Never, ever use ether in a CASE diesel, and don't overheat & they will not crack.
