If it's Cracked between the Waterjacket,+ the Oil cavities,.......

OK,.....

It's leaking, Just Below the Sparkplug,.??....And, Behind the Exhaust Manifold,..???.....
That would be The Very Top of the Block,.... Probably right at the block's side to Deck point.........

IF that's the case,......
Your motor is JUNK.......
A Crack that far Up on the block is going to allow the Deck(or the Top of the Block) to be Unstable,......
The Tighter the Headbolts are, The Bigger the Crack will get......

I'm Sorry,.... There just Ain't No Fixing a block cracked in That Area.......
The Only Fix,......... Is Block Replacement.........

If it had been Lower on the block,.. down by the Coreplugs,... You Might have Saved it.......

I'm Surprized that you Didn't find several Cracks in the Lifter Valley when you replaced the Intake Manifold.......
