The worst cracks in 914 heads won't be visible from the outside. If you pull the exhaust, you can look up into the exhaust port and see the cracks that often form there. But you just about have to pull the head off the motor to see cracks around the spark plug holes--I don't think they're visible from the outside unless they're really bad.

I would assume the motor is a core unless there is documentation that proves a recent rebuild...
