Sorry for the long delay in updates but...
Got a Bellhousing for the 289 to go onto a R21 Toyota Gearbox :)
But as we tried to fit and what not, the thing didn't, So we check and checked again, we came to the conclusion that it is for a 350 SBC to a R21 GB, bloody numbskull saw us coming who sold it to us :x

Well the engine is almost complete, and ready to fit within 2 to 3 weeks :mrgreen:

Will post some pics of the progress so far later this week.
