Clean it good & lightly coat it in something like flour or talcum powder.  If it is cracked or leaking, you'll know where soon enough.

I haven't put the cylinder back together yet, but maybe if I run it through the parts washer and try what yo suggest, maybe that will tell me?

Not sure, but it's worth a try.  The purpose of the flour / talc is to absorb the fluid leaking out of the cylinder & give you an identifiable wet spot, aka the crack. Not sure if it will work without fluid leaking out, but maybe some will be trapped in the crack & wick back out with the coating.

Today, got some cleaning done on the engine block and oil pan. Not to far from being ready to send the block to the machine shop!
