Re: 289 Kit

Hi Colin. I read your mail but can't seem to find it now. From what i can remember from your mail. The kit was out of an Australian 289 race engine with the crankshaft manufactured by a company there. I'm not sure which grade of steel the crank is made from. Comp height is going to be std 289 stroke plus the rod length - deck height. Thanks Pete.

Re: 289 Kit

It was the dome volume I was after - to give some idea of comp ratio, is there a CP part number? Can you tell whether the crank is machined from a billet or a forging?

Re: 289 Kit

Hi Colin. The crank is machined all over so would say billet. The pistons are in my workshop so will get some piston specs. Thanks Pete.
