96 Kawasaki 750 sxi head cracked while installing

Rate this Entry
I am finishing a engine rebuild on a 96 sxi. The ski was never apart prior to me dis-assembling it. I replaced crank seals and end bearings on crank. I also bored it over .5 and installed new pro x pistons, rings and top rod bearings. I torqued the head to 22 ft lbs, on the number 1 and 2 nuts I heard a loud pop. I pulled the head back off and it cracked in two spots. Has this happened to anyone?
I am now looking for a new head. Mine is stamped with C. I found one thats stamped D. I am trying to keep things oem to prevent future risk of failure. I assume the D stamp will raise compression. Should I keep looking or just get the D stamp head?
