I'm going to pull the trigger on a new motor and have figured out what I do and don't need. The 289 needs a new home.
I'm selling it complete less valve covers (I welded in AN bungs for a crankcase system and need that on the new motor), oil pan and water pump.
Here is what I can't re-use on the new motor from top down and is installed and working on the 289:
Edelbrock carb 600cfm elec choke.
Weiand Stealth intake
Dist. coil and Petronix with wires and plugs
Ported 289 heads, rockers, pushrods etc.
Shortblock was put together last Summer with fresh rings, freeze plugs, pistons, bearings, it only needed a hone. Doesn't blow any oil.
Comp Cams Magnum 270 hydraulic cam, lifters, springs etc.
New alum. timing cover.
Edelbrock mech. fuel pump.
Flywheel and RAM clutch
I'll even throw in the starter and a well used set of Hooker competition headers.
I want $1500 for the entire lump.
Makes 300rwhp at 6000rpm. Its a good little runner -
I also have:
302 Mexican block freshly machined for a 331 rotating assembly - $525
AFR185 58cc heads - $925
Holley 650 Double Pumper - (few runs on a motor on the dyno, was too small so replaced - barely uesed) $275
