Re: Experience of Sleeved 289 block?

Given that info, I'd go for a 302 block and crank. A 6-bolt 289 is just as 'incorrect'* as a 302, so why bother?

Re: Experience of Sleeved 289 block?

Hello Bill, and welcome. 289 blocks and 302 blocks are virtually identical and have only a very few visual differences in appearance. 302 blocks are more easy to come by, but you need to clarify what you are trying to achieve.

My invoice lists product code of HU31SPECIAL - but you could quote my invoice number, which is 86669, order number 17942.

Re: Karvel carpet

The carpet on the outer footwell sides and glued to the inside of the doors has the ribbing running vertically. That on the front (bulkhead) part of the tunnel has the ribbing horizontal. The 'transition panel' that forms the top of this section has ribbing running across the car, but I don't think ...

I find waterproof over-trousers address the leaking issue, but as I don't have a roof, I have a much larger opening where the water can get in.

Re: Insurance

The premiums will be based on the claims history for cars of that type and with the same pattern of usage. I don't think they get bogged down with minutiae like that - if they did, every single claim could be considered null and void as they will always find something you've changed without telling ...
