Today, Roger and I got the old 289 out and on the engine stand (know anybody that wants a complete, tired 289?). Now comes the slow, hard part of the process: cleaning up the engine compartment. It's a mess!

I've seen worse. You'll have it whipped into shape in no-time. And then we can put the new one in after the front-end parts are swapped out... while we're at it. There are those four evil words again.

I'm also not sure you can prove that was me behind that hoist. I've been resting on my couch all day long.

Naw... I confess. It was me. I'm not sure anything can "brighten me up" these days.

If you need a place to bury that 289, put it in a box and send it over. I have another one in the shop. Maybe I can make one not so tired one???

After finding out how quickly Gene got rid of his old 302, once he gets rid of this 289, I may get rid of my extra 69 302 block and crank and all the other parts to it I'll never use. I'll wait until he sells his, so as to not compete with him.

What a guy.

I know.

I put up a posting on the Van forum for your motor as the 289/302 fits nicely without doghouse modification (). Hopefully you can get a little $$ for it to fund the rest of your project.

They'll go nicely into my much bigger bin of wires!

Glad to see you got the connectors apart...
