So, I've been doing some major cleaning out of the garage (working from home now, and not going out much), and as I can best determine, I've got a 289 (.030 overbore), that has some slight surface rust on one cylinder (will need to go to .040 or .060 over to clean up). Been kept in the garage for the last 10 years after replacing it with a 351W, but due to antifreeze getting into this cylinder on tear-down years ago, that one cylinder has the damage. Cannot determine with any accuracy the depth of the surface rust...just barely catches a fingernail. Anyway, on to my point...It's a short-block, and I may find other parts and pieces for it. Primarily want to get it out of my way, know freight is a distractor to any recipient/buyer, but throwing this out for consideration, but not wanting to spend a lot of personal time for preparation to ship (expect compensation for such). Anyway, I'll send pics to anybody seriously interested. May even throw in an aluminum flywheel with it. Hoping for moderator approval for this post. The block has 289 cast into it, and as best as I can determine, the stroke is close to 2.8? based on rough depth-gauge readings. USA based location.
You could put this in the Garage Sale section along with any photos you might have and price. Certainly shipping would be an issue even if being shipped across town and the buyer would have to expect that. Buyers can also arrange their own shipping..
 
I was asking Mark if he had found a suitable block because I was thinking of selling my acid dipped 1968 std bore 302 block.

The pit's not too deep if you don't want any performance goodies.
Price is just under £3,000 currently

Reconditioned Ford 302W 5.0 litre Engine “1968-74” This reconditioned 302 5.0 litre engine assembly covers the year ranges “1968-74”. It is a stripped long engine, and does not include- sump, timing cover or rocker covers. The dipstick could be mounted in the timing cover or the side of the block. Presently, the hole for the side dipstick is blocked off. From your old unit you will need to transfer all the "tinware", eg, rocker covers, sump, timing cover, inlet manifold, distributor etc. A 50”oz 157 tooth flywheel & a 50” oz harmonic balancer are supplied. The unit is fitted with spark plugs and a fuel pump eccentric. If you have an early Mustang with a manual transmission, you will need a bracket for the clutch shaft.
