Got 3 complete 289's that are running but need some lovingLOL. All things being equal between 302 and 289 what if any difference would be between them. What kind of rpm will the stock rods and crank stand with the proper mach. work?

Thanks
Randy

A well machined 289 block, stock crank, 5/16 289 rods bushed and with premium bolts will withstand 8000 RPM. No brag, just fact. That's what I ran with no breakage until recently. (1998). When we began to exceed the 9k RPM range we feld the need for something a bit more stable.
I prefer the early 289 1X crank and 2.875 stroke over the later 302 crank and 3.00 stroke. You get to use a longer rod also.
