I should have been more clear... early 289/302 (non roller) blocks have the shorter bore skirt compared to roller 5.0L block. I have seen it and can round up a pic or measurements.
I called my uncle, he built the engine, and it is a 302.On 2002-02-12 22:18, rod n az wrote:
My 347 is a 289 block. It has run good so far. The highest I've revved it is to 6500 rpm.
