How can we tell if it is cracked? What years are interchangable?

the 1.9 ** head can be swapped with any other 1.9 ** head. you can tell it is a ** head buy the hemispherical combustion chamber. cracks on these things are almost always visible they crack between the valves and on the top they crack along the center line or around where the camshaft is. normally a tranny pick will pick up cracks pretty well. i hve been told that the 1.9HO head is enough different that a normal CVH head wont just bolt on. so i am left with a 1.9 ** head off of an Escort GT or an EXP i believe 86-90 is when they used this engine.

went and bought a head today for 70 bucks from a junkyard 100 miles away lol appears to be uncracked (only visual inspections have been done) it is very dirty and needs a very good cleaning but it should work. it was from an 87 EXP
