cracked cylinder fin

I am rebuilding the top end, and I discovered a crack on the #3 cylinder fin. It starts at one of the holes that the studs pass through and extends about one inch to the end of the fin. It is not completely cracked through or broke, and does not extend into the barrel. It doen't look like it can spread because it basically starts and ends at the ends of metal. Should I replace the cylinders,or do you think it would be ok to let it go?thanks
