3.0 crd glow plug/head options, THANKS!

Hello everyone, I have a 2008 wk 123k on it. 3.0 diesel, swirl valve mod and ccv vented to a catch can. Now for where I need help. Broke #5 glow plug off in the head. Could not retrieve with an easy-out. Sent it to a local shop and got hosed. They removed the head and ''machined'' out the glow plug, rewelded the head and tapped new glow plug hole. looked great. However, they drilled through the seat that the glow plug seats in. So now it is at a different shop [autobahn auto in Indiana] where I now have a compression leak from the threads. Needless to say I need driver side head. I do not really want to put 1 new head on. if I could find a used one I would love it. Any one know if a sprinter om642 head will work ? not sure how identical a GC set up is to the other vehicles that have the om642.

Thanks for your help.

This is my 7th GC, but my first diesel. . .
