Sounds like a TE20! :D
Don't know why Continental engines have cracking problem, their aircraft engine crank cases and cylinders are also prone to cracking but in all fairness, usually due to incorrect engine operation and shock cooling. Stress in the castings I guess.
The Z120 is prone to cracking, but I suspect only when operated incorrectly or allowed to overheat or shock cool. I don't speak from experience as there are no TO20/30 tractors in Australia.
I still think having the block furnace brazed, stress relieved, line bored and machined will probably cost a lot less than an engine swap and you should have no further cracking problems after the block has been stress relieved.
