Got the block out ,it is a 65 289 all standard . Have a bit of notching on the lower skirts for rod clearance and it can go in for the rest of the machine work ,soon as we get the stroke kit

This is the greatest thread, you are pioneering everything I am trying to figure out. How much do you normally spend on machining the block and what transmission setup are you planning to use?

Been a couple of years since i built a motor so i am sure the machine work has gone up . The block will be bored ,cam bearings installed after i notch the skirts for rod clearance ,the rotating assembly will be balanced and i will do everything else . We are probably going to use a race preped Art Car C4 for now then swap out to a top loader

Ok ,we have been waiting months on a 347 kit ,it never came so we decided to just build a nice 302 instead . I had a standard bore 65 289 block ,it will get bored .30 over . I also have a nice standard 302 crank that will be turned .10 under . Nick ordered .30 over forged pistons with rings , .10 rod and main clevite bearings .got a new melling oil pump to keep it all oiled . Bought a new MSD dist. ,i already have a new 6AL box .
Cam shaft is ordered and should be here in the next day or two its a comp cams 280H ,i really like this cam .. bought a new harmonic balancer ,28 ounce of course !.
New Headman headers set up for 4 speed . I have a edelbrok performer intake .
We are going to use stock 65 heads for now until Nick can afford a set of performer heads ,i will port them before it all goes together .
I should be taking it to the machine shop here in the next day or two to have the block bored .

A new set of roller rockers
And a new Edelbrock performer .
