I have seen and machined a lot of heads for 14mm bottom plugs. I have only seen around four crack. I have never seen one crack around the top 14mm plug. All four cracks were between the bottom 14mm crack and an exhaust seat. A couple of the bottom plugs were machined noticeably off center and closer to the exhaust than the intake but I know from experience that getting all that lined up takes some time that apparently not all are willing to make. I have seen a lot of bottom plugs favor one side over the other. I had 12mm plugs put in my dual plug setup.
