So as i'm laying under the truck, turning the crank with a socket, the #2 and #3 cylinders give me a very wet wooshy gooshy sound as they compress that I don't get from the other cylinders. Also, they then start dripping coolant down at a faster rate than before. That seems to lean me towards head gasket.... but I'm still unclear if there's any way to nail it down as that instead of a cracked head?

Either way the head has to come off so does it matter?

Unless you're going to scrap the motor if the head's cracked, then I guess you would save some work but it doesn't seem likely.

Are these known for cracking heads?

I don't think that they are prone to head cracking.
It's just it's 54 years of age.
And realistically, in that time span, how often would the antifreeze have been changed on schedule to keep the corrosion inhibitors fresh.
