Take the head to a reputable machine shop. Depending on where the crack is, it may be able to be welded. The machine shop we use around here does not weld the heads themselves, but send them out to another shop in downtown Atlanta (which most machine shops use) to have them welded. They then return and complete any other necessary repairs. Expensive gasket set and a lot of work to try sealer, which probably won't work.
