A buddy of mine is looking for a n.o.s. crank," I think for a full flow = long snout ?" could an early one be used in a full flow ?,anyways the question is there one available ?

Yes, an early shaft can be used as long as the appropriate bolt comes with it.

Might as well take a poll here. What would an NOS 289" crankshaft be worth these days?

Might as well ask another question. Why is your bud so adamant about paying huge bucks for a NOS shaft? The engine will never know if it's got a used shaft which ran 100,000 miles and then was turned .010"-.020" or .030".

I certainly do not have the mechanical experience as you have,but I agree with what You say about the crank not having a mind of it's own.He made a comment that He's never had any luck with anyone turning a crank for Him,says no one seems too know what they're doing "maybe those guys didn't ?" likely He'll end up with a .010 job.

I will take a guess at $500.00 to $850.00 for a Long Snout 289 in perfect NOS condition. Until we see one peak out on eBay, I guess we won't actually KNOW.

What was Dennis' last price at SASCO? $1400.00 or so I think, or was that one of the NOS 289 Block and Pistons? :confused:

As they say, "Your results may vary," but I've been using reground cranks for fifty years and never had any problems with them. These days, I line hone all my blocks and balance all the rotating assembly. Those two steps definitely increase performance and longevity.

I bought a new 289 crank 18 months ago for $450 (plus freight)...

"Should" be a p/n# 1558030

But that number is off of the box, so it could be different..

The one I have is #536452. Guess that's for a 259 if anyone needs one.
