Yes, that head looks bad to me. If I were rebuilding the engine, I wouldn't have used it at all. This means:

1- the head was cracked post-install (BAD)
2- the head was cracked and the rebuilder decided to use it anyways (VERY BAD).

Who knows what other shortcuts the rebuilder took on this engine, if they thought that this guide boss was okay?

Get the Engine Book - there are lots of questions to ask in there - it will help you make an informed decision, instead of just guessing...
