The rear cap in the picture is still a standard non Hipo cap. The Hipo cap will have a C3OE-A casting number.

Maybe someone should point this out to the seller considering the starting bid is $600... :o

I have already contacted the seller and he asked for pictures. I just sent the seller pictures of the differences.

Hi,

How much would a set like this go for? 4 hipo caps and a standard rear cap? Was the rear cap beefier as well?

Here's a set of main bearing caps for sale at a set price of $1,250.00 by eBay member "turnersmiller". Good luck! :roll:

DESCRIPTION: "This is a complete set of 289 Hipo main caps. Caps are in very good condition with no cracks or spun bearings. Has the numbers with the arrows on the #1 through #4 caps. Has the C3OE-A on the rear cap. The 3 is stamped in lieu of cast which means these are from a 1966 or 1967 Hipo. The 1964 and 1965 caps had the 3 cast into them. Will also fit a 302 block. These are the real deal and very hard to find!"

These caps are on Ebay again with the same issue of having a standard rather than a Hipo rear cap:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0784113945

I have mentioned this issue to the seller again but, as on the last round, they do not mention the issue in their auction.

This set of main caps is for sale by eBay member " njpyramid" SOLD for $1,032.80 [28 bids] in a no reserve auction.

DESCRIPTION: "I'm selling other hard to find HIPO 289 parts in my other current listings so please check them out!

Here is a matched set of original 289 K-Code high performance main caps. These caps were the only difference between a stock 289 engine block and a 289 HIPO block. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. These are factory original caps that came off of a real K code block years ago when it was retired from use after being bored over anymore. These caps were taken off and have been in dry storage ever since for the past 30 years. These are correct for all 289 HIPO engines from 1963-1967. The rear main cap has a part number of C3OE-A. The rest of the caps are marked 1, 2, 3, 4 with arrows (see pics). These caps are in excellent shape and have never had a spun bearing ever. They have no cracks and they have never been repaired. All of the mounting holes are in excellent shape. These are a must have for any 289 engine build up. Don't make the mistake of not running real 289 HIPO main caps in your motor for your high end restoration. If the engine ever had to come apart (for whatever reason), you don't want someone seeing that you didn't use all the correct HIPO parts. I see that they reproduce these but they are of low quality and are made from cheaper metal. Do you trust reproductions at 6,500 rpm? Me neither! These 289 HIPO main caps are very hard to find anymore as a matched set in excellent shape so don't miss out on these at NO RESERVE!! Please feel free to message me any and all questions regarding these main caps. "

Here's a nice set of used main caps that SOLD for just $862.00 by eBay member "acman63".

DESCRIPTION: "This is a great set of original 289 K code main bearing caps. This is what makes a 289 block a 289 High Performance block. This would be correct for all 1963-67 cars equipped with 289 K code including all 289 Cobras, all 1965-67 Shelby GT350s , 63-65 Fairlane Hipo equipped cars and all 64 ½-67 Mustangs with K serial number codes. I’ve been saving these for a CSX8000 series 289 Cobra but now the customer is going with a 4 bolt main block. These caps have been hot tanked, vibratory deburred and sonofluxed for cracks. As you can see from the pics they are a great original set and I will include an original set of Ford mounting bolts if needed at auctions end. I haven’t see any of these on eBay in a long time, last set went for well over $1000, and they were just greasy cores that were never checked. Don’t miss a chance to get a great set of real Hipo main caps."
