  • Engine: 289 crank snout length

    I've seen mention of a short snout and a long snout on the 289 cranks with the long snouts supposedly used by the later 289s. What is the difference in lengths between the short and long? I have a lead on a 289 crank and bearings that has been turned 10 under, but when I ask the short or long snout question the reply comes back as 3-1/2". Is this short or long???

    That is approximately the long-snout dimension. Short-snout dimension is about 2 3/4"

    This is all discussed with copies of the appropriate Studebaker Service Bulletins in the December 2011 Turning Wheels Co-Operator. (Not the November issue now being mailed, but December, which you'll have around Thanksgiving here in the 'states.) BP

        Looking forward to that issue. I have a SASCO long snout crank for a 259, still in the box. Decided to go with original turned 10 thou under. My engine builder was retired with a plaque thanking him for building 20,000 engines. I'm thanking him, too. The engine build was one of the few things that didn't need a Do-Over! Thank God for "old" people (lol).

          Dave, if you would be so kind as to specify a minimum age for your definition of "old," some of us might be flattered. <GGG> BP

                long snout

                I was wondering if they made long snout 259 crankshafts. I really like that Avanti vibration dampner, and you have to have the long snout to install one of those.

                  All of the full flow Blocks/Engines (late '62 to '64) have the long nose crank.

                    I only used "OLD" to differentiate from all the "New" guys at the machine shop from whence my guy retired. The block, crank, heads, etc. were sent in to be tanked and fluxed and machined. They did OK, but they tried to install the con rods and pistons and didn't know that Stude con rods are specific to each side of the engine. The oil passages and everything else Stude specific were things they just don't deal with on the newer engines. My "OLD" guy undid their work and did it right. He also rebuilt my Ross steering box....and he is so humble. That's the kind of old guy I wan't to grow up to be
