What is the max bore for 289 / 302 ci .
The machine shop that did my original untouched 66 289CID engine recomended 0.020in overbore as a start. The procedure he used was to bore 0.018in first, and then hone the rest to 0.020in. The bad news was it didn't work, there was a small hole in no. 8 cylinder. I got another untouched date coded block, did the same overbore and this time it was OK. As I didn't want to have the first block sleeved, so I sold it to someone who didn't mind the sleeve. You take your chances. Standard overbores for 289CID engines are: 0.020in, 0.030in, 0.040in and 0.060in (Note: 0.050in over pistons are hard to find). As to max, a 0.060in overbore will get you about 297CID. The 302CID engine was a stroked 4.00in bore. Conventional wisdom states that any small block Ford engine (289, 302 and 351W) run hot when overbored so figure on a larger radiator. Crate motors get 347CID from a start of 302 but they are new castings, subjected to high manufacturing standard and are assembled individually, not mass produced. A 351W can be bored and stroked to 427CID. I know a guy with a repro 65 Cobra with a 351W/427Cid engine and it is awesome.

3.0 and 4.0 are the standard bores.  Anything more will cause a ton of overheating problems.  How's the weather in France?

Uh, does that mean you are cooking with wine (chicken with Gewurztraminer tonight for me) or the light is out in the bathroom?
