All Chevy V8's and inline 6 use the same bolt pattern and it is different from the bolt pattern used for Buick, Olds, Pontiac and Cadillac. A transmission that fits one Chevy V8 or inline 6 will fit any other V8 or inline 6. Not sure if V6 uses the same pattern.
Disconnect the battery. Unhook the wiring on the end of the solenoid. If there is a support bracket on the end of the starter, unhook it. If the exhaust is in the way, unhook that. Remove the two bolts that hold the starter to the back of the block.
No way, not even close. Chevy REDESIGNED the engine blocks and the transmissions in late 1999. Nothing will interchange under 1999.
Hey John==It is quite involved. Get a manual from the local parts store and it should have pictures and everything. Good luck, Joe
A 305 had a 3.75 bore with 3.48 stroke. Adding .030 to the bore and using the formula pi times the radius squared times the stroke times the number of cylinders equals 312.
yes it will work you will be geared low
no need for a diagram, there a a few steps to make sure your engine is spot on when you re-install the dist, or if you just tangle the wires replacing them. I'll just tell you how to set the wires up, assuming the distributor wasn't removed, or moved at all, point the closed rotor cap #1...
A K1500 4x4 short wheelbase is the closest. The wheelbase of the caprice is 116" and the K1500 4x4swb is 117.5". I'm looking to do the same with an 87 caprice. Seems like a surburban frame with a section cut out and boxed may be the way to go. as the frame looks similar to the caprice
buy a Chilton's manual or a Haynes repair manual they have them in them You can but if you go to LMC truck you can order the whole diagram of the vacuum lines and it is a sticker that goes under the hood for about $4-6 dollars and you can get a magazine for your truck giving you all replacement...
Remove the woodgrain pieces from your dash and you'll see 4 screws holding it in. Take them out, and pull the whole stereo out of the car by unplugging the harnesses in the back. As far as installing a new one, you could get another stereo from any old gm car and the old harness will work. If you...
1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 . The firing order goes 1357 is on the right side of the block 2468 are left side. that is if you are standin in front of the motor
Answer . A 1977 caprice was using the same 267cid engine as the impala at the time, wikipedia says it had around 170hp.
pull out a vaccuum gauge install on vaccuum port of carburetor start vehicle use adjustment screws to pull the most vaccuum as possible on each port,repeat process on second port once adjusted press throttle to around 2000 r.p.m.'s to determine where vaccuum gauge needle is operating at.
if you have never done this before,i suggest you purchase a good manual for your car and follow the instructions.there is a long list of things that must be done in a certain order to remove/replace a head(s) and get it running again.
Yes there is a 350 Big Block, they are very uncommon to find. the motor came from the ideas of the 350 big block as well as the But in the 1970's, Chevy came out with one of there own to counter the They where not used in everyday car's but, once in while you'd find them in car's that demanded a...
1980 and newer GM engines are computer controlled which essentially eliminates the need for adjusting the timing. In the event that the distributor has been moved and needs to be reset, consult a Haynes or Chilton's manual to confirm two things: 1. What the timing should be set at (I believe that...
It would be best not to put any transmission fluid in the engine. Really!! I'd never of guessed. I guess the clue is 'transmission and fluid' and that the fluid goes in the transmission!! the reason I put the type of engine was IOT assist someone with a realistic answer, I didn't expect for one...
1 8 3 4 6 5 7 2 ---cylinders 1 3 5 7 on driver's side front to rear. cylinders 2 4 6 8 on pass side front to rear.
The 305 & 350 are basically the same engine. The 305 just has a smaller bore(3.736 vs. 4.000), not quite the power or torque, but durability should be almost identical. It is more costy to rebuild a 305 than a 350 due to the popularity of the 350. If power is not an issue then go for the 305 if you...
Want to sea foam my 2002 Chevy 2500hd 6.0 what vacuum hose do I use
depends if its fuel injected or carburated. tbi under drivers side door, carb urated should be right by carb
chevy is better because they dont fall apart like the fords plus chevys can haul more. if you go on you tube and look up videos on them you will see. ford is ok but i dont know whats your opion?
look at the back of the block to the left of the top tranny bolt, it will say GM 5.0 or 5.7lg
No the head gaskets are dependent on bore size
That # 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 is the firing order on V-8 engines, Not a intake #. Still don't know what intake you have.
That head was used on the 305 engines from 1987 to 1991. NOTHING SPECIAL about that head at all.
Prestone (and perhaps others) sells a kit that makes this easier. Should be available at most auto parts stores.
Stamped on the front of the motor in front of the carbuerator. Also the cars booh should have. Try callin an aout parts store too
The horsepower depends largely on which small block 305 you have. Most of the early model 305's(1976-1980) are around 150 hp with a compression ratio of 8.5:1. The later model versions hover around 190 hp all the way up to about 215 hp. Check out this site
Bring number one cylinder to top dead center. Make Sher you on the compression stroke. If not your 360 degrees off with you piston setting for tdc. Make Sher that the distributor rotor is pointing at number one wire on the cap. That should put you in time.
You would need to know the gear ratio and tire diameter to calculate engine speed. only on NON sports. Sports dont have them.
take all the wiring and hoses loose from the top of the engine, and you might have to remove the valve covers. then just loosen the intake manifold bolts
Stroking an engine means changing to a crankshaft with a longer stroke such as putting a crank from a 400 into a 350 block. Changing to a different head could change the compression ratio and the amount of flow through the intake and exhaust.
I can answer this because a buddy of mine did it. A distributor from a 305 will fit a 350, however it will not perform as well. Loss of horse power and you won't be able to get the timing set perfectly, because of this you will need to adjust the carburator. to the timing. It's a headache, my buddy...
Answer . If hazard warning switch is in the dash - turn signal flasher is probably part of that module (Newer GM). If hazard warning switch is on steering column check in or near the fuse box
what about it?
Mounted on top of the block.
It should be in the back of the engine, just to the drivers side of the distributor.
the transmission is slipping
5 QTS. with a new filter.
Answer . replace the ecm (engine control module) comp
As far as I understand the only difference between a 305 and a 350 is the cylinder bore and piston size so a cam from a 305 should work in a 350 This person is correct in that the measurements of the bore and stroke the only difference is the bore. where they are wrong is that the internal...
driver side front to rear,1-3-5-7. pass. side front to rear,2-4-6-8.
Both engines are Chevy small block so modifications should be minor.
no you cant this is a different style and requires that style of head
Yes, there is no difference in block size between a 2 or a 4 bolt bolt 350 in '83, although depending what was in the car before, say a 6, you may have some engine mounting, trans issues, cooling, bracketing, and of course exhaust, hopefully the "2" bolt is a carburetor engine, and of the earlier 8...
Sounds like you have a main bearing failing, when you do it in gear there is more load on the bearing. well thank you for the answer, but i pulled the flywheel cover and had a couple of loose bolts, one was out a 1/4 inch and rubbing on the cover. well what do yo know its fixed ! thank you for the...
No, TBI stands for Throttle Body Injection. It is similar to a carb, but uses a different method to dispense fuel.
Probably not. Unless the previous intake and carb were not functioning properly.
most Chevy trannys made for small blocks will bolt some additional information .... Chevy never made a 305 with a 4 bold main only 2 bolt main
No, just under and above the intake gaskets.
What engine is it in? 305/350 V8s use 5L of 5w30 in the winter and 10w30 in the summer
Pull out the transmission dipstick and put the fluid in there. There are special funnels available for this purpose.
all Chevy v-8's big block & small block firing order is as follows clockwise on the distributor cap.... 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
just use a light tester, clamp the gator clamp on a ground turn your light on and jam the tip into differant wires on the plug, you will actually have 2 power wires, one for low beams and 1 for high beams
the knock could coe from a few places, if it is in fact a "knock" it could be a piston rod, if its more of a tapping comming from the top of the motor you could have a loose rocker arm, if it is a loose rocker arm i would suggest tightening them up if it stops and comes back i would replace the...
On the 305 engine the number one plug position is the first one on the right side while you are facing the engine.
It may have been rebuilt before. It's probably bore number if rotating assembly was balanced to make sure they stayed on the right journals. (weight added/removed from rods) Check to see if weight added anywhere. it could also be a quickie ring change was done & someone wanted to correspond each...
The first place to look is a vacuum leak, like a bad carb. to intake gasket or disconnected/ cracked hose, or even a faulty pcv valve.
Whenever someone has trouble timing a Chevrolet V8 engine, the cause for the problem generally points to a stretched or worn out timing chain & gears. Make sure that all timing advance mechanisms are disabled. Depending on the age of the vehicle in question it may be as simple as plugging the...
.35 , you can also check the label in the front of the engine compartment, it will have all your gaps and timing specs
This is a VERY COMPLECATED job. DO NOT TRY IT IF YOU DON'T KNOW what you are doing. if you insit on doing it get a hanes repair manuel for your motor! and follow it!
If it is the L03 305 all you need is an 87 and up carb intake (the 4 center bolt holes are different than 86 and older) and a 75-79 HEI distributor setup. When you buy the coil, make sure you get the non-computer coil. There are two options (one with a yellow wire and one with a white wire. It does...
usually a bad head gasket or cracked head
You can hook up the starter, on your 1984 Chevrolet, by attachingthe ground cable and the hot cable to the appropriate posts on thestarter. Bolt the starter into place.
can i put a 350 rocket that comes out of a 69 cuttless into my 1990caprice
There is no timing belt on a 305 unless it is an aftermarket belt drive system.
i like to know what wire it is if any one knows email it to me thanks
Contact the cam manufacturer of your choice for a recommendation based on your application.
Look in the carb and push the throttle, if there is no fuel, it could be the fuel pump. Pull a spark plug wire off and check for spark, put a screwdriver or similar piece of metal in the boot and lay it near a good ground on the engine, crank over and watch for spark, if no spark, replace the...
Answer . Yes possibly the parts you refer to are general engine maintenance parts. These parts would not repair the problem you are describing if it pre-existed.
