Yes, it will work as long as you use the correct rods and pistons.
There are several rear main seals to choose from.

Don't forget too that 289 cranks have that lip by the rear main seal that rides in a groove on early 289/302 blocks. Roller motors don't have that groove, and hence their cranks don't have that lip- so you have to machine it off the 289 to work.
