Wish I knew. I haven't looked at it personally, but, I'd bet it must have been overheated somewhere in it's life. The machine shop mentioned that the cracks are extremely fine and would take quite some time to open and allow combustion pressure into the cooling system. That's what was occurring. A very slow leak that gradually increased to become noticeable.

Jim Ellington has one for me from an '85 300D. It should be the perfect replacement.
