 I thought about having it sleeved, but since it was over heated I don't trust the other cylinders
 even if they check good now. I have another block that I am going to use

Probably a wise decision, metal undergoes a lot of change when quenched.  Hopefully have everything back together when the water is soft again.

   The White along the crack is how long it is.  Water pump impeller blocked water flow to that side of block
