Related question:

What size are the studs for the exhaust manifold to cylinder head and where can one get them?

I'm in the middle of replacing the cylinder head/piston/rod due to a dropped seat.

Thanks!

Is the head of the piston beat up with dents?

If not was engine repaired for this before?

Where is the crack located on the piston?

Skirts (the sides) can crack just from running too loose, the flopping about hammers on them to crack. Someone doing an earlier rework could possibly hone a bore too much to make it loose and the crack then. Maybe even left a cracked one in there. People do silly things all the time.
