Elmer, I have a rebuilt WD 45 Diesel head that I will sell for $475. It has been bead blasted, pressure checked ok, guilds knerled, valves and seats ground and surfaced, ready to install. I am pretty sure a WD 45 and D-17 diesel heads are the same. Let me know if I can help. Thanks, Brian, Ohio.

Elmer: Where are the cracks in the head? If they are around the energy cell, it is a common occurence on this style cylinder head. If this is the case, take the cylinder head to a machine shop that does head work and have them pressure check the head. If they find no leaks then have them recondition the valves and plane the surface of the head if necessary. Reinstall the head and you should have no problems. Of course if they find a leak then that is a different story. I hope that this information helps you. Gordon
