Not if my plan is to sleeve anyways.

Now I can understand the crack being an issue if it extends too far towards the crank, but what if it appears to be isolated near the top of the bore? Since most of the stock sleeve is removed entirely anyways, how can one know for sure if the remainder has been compromised? Can a sonic test provide the necessary information? I have seen a few posts(three maybe) that state the block should simply be welded first, but no further information or apparent validation of this method.
