Re: 289 crank

I have NEVER heard of these breaking.If there was any rotating assembly failures it was rods, oil surge etc..The crank is stronger than block !!! For the money get it enterrnally ballanced with some mallory added to counterweights...
Use a steel 302 -3" stroke and 5.4 " rods...???

Re: 289 crank

yeah 302 cranks are easy to get but i want the thing to rev so the shorter stroke will help - also the 302 crank and rods will sit the pistons to high in the block

Re: 289 crank

I doubt steel cranks are any lighter ?? May have to order a custom crank, they may have them on the shelf but they don't advertise them..
302 and 289 have same deck height 289 have longer rods which makes up for shorter stroke or more the point 302 have shorter rods...Quality rods are whats required!!! Eagle / Oliver etc...Have you thought of nitriding your crank ??
may have to ask here

Not certain but I think the 289 h.p[four barrel] had better crank etc...
Bootie is that Hamilton NZ ?
