    I've put lintel up few days ago. Realised the front one has vertical crack in centre.

    Won't be supporting anything. Would it be OK or do I need to change it.

    It likely will be ok, but I would change it while you can
     
  4. the crack is right through it, it’ll bow under its own weight. it has to be replaced.
