Hey Gun Jam...you do not..repeat...DO NOT have to pull the distributor to change the intake gasket on a 289. I know because I recently changed my intake manifold without pulling the distributor. If...

Yeah...I've already decided against it myself. I've had a chance to see up close a couple cars painted that color around here. No way I'm going to pay good money to make my car look like that! (Sorry...

Unless you're dead set on keeping the whole car original, if you want 300cid, why not just drop in a 289 or 302? Sure, you'll have to replace some susspension components, but putting 6-cylinders in...

You didn't say what year is your 302 (they're not "stock" in a '65), as there were several changes made over the years in the 302 (combustion chamb. etc.). In any case.....definitely go with...

Question Weird electrical issue with a '65 and tach

Folks,

I posted something about this about a year ago, but have NOT yet got this solved. My '65 289 has a Duraspark II ignition, and I've got an Autometer Model 2895 tach hooked up. Ever since...

Interesting...67Mustang 302 said not to tune the carb by the vacuum. So, what do you suggest? I'm curious because I tuned my Holley 600 (Model 1850-C) this way, and afterwards it seemed like it had...

Yeah, I do believe it has a 28-oz balance crank. I asked the PO specifically what rods and crank he used, and he said stock 289. But...the guy did all kinds of weird s*** when he built the car, so...

I've been researching aluminum heads for my 289 over the past several weeks, and have noticed that some (TFS, Edelbrock) recommend drilling "steam holes" in the block deck surface to...

This should make for a short thread, as I'm sure someone will provide a good answer pretty quick. I have a '65 289 which is running a 50-oz balancer off a 5.0 HO engine, and a 28-oz 164-tooth...
