Well, I need *a* head actually. Pulled a '98 400 apart last night to find why it was using coolant. It is cracked in two places. Anyone have a good used head for a '98 or '99 400 laying around?

I don't have a head for you, but do you have any ideas as to why it cracked? Did you get low on coolant or did it boil?

It took me 6 months of looking to find one used. Thanks to dirtbikedave, I finally got one.

Being aluminum, it can be fixed. Ive seen some aluminum big block chevy heads, that were, what looked like toast, saved to race another day. Not a lot makes a bigger mess than a 2 1/4 inch valve head on the loose in a combustion chamber! Cost me 1100 bucks to fix it, but it saved my 4000 dollar head.
