first disconect battery,carb(fuel lines)and throttle cable(might have a second kick down cable on some models),some models will have sensors and vacuum hoses that need unpluged from the intake manfold such as the water temp guage sensor on the thermostat housing and others(color code and disconnect) remove distributor and spark plug wires,remove upper radiator hose, remove intake manifold,remove alternator...depending if its drivers or passengers....powersteering pump...diconect pump from brackets lay to the side...no need to disconect hoses.....disconect exhaust manifold.....now drain radiator,,,, remove valve cover exposing rocker arms(this is also when you get to see how gunked up your engine is. If it is really gunked up. could be signs of future problems do to bad oil flow. bearings, lifters, etc....)......loosen rockers ....remove push rods keeping in order.....remove head bolts...stick screw driver in exhaust port to free head from gasket..... In this type of project it would be a good idea to take notes, pictures and label connections as much as possible if replacing head back onto engine later. Itemize parts in jars or storage trays. clean off all gaskets and replace with oem or better. Note when your putting everything back together. it would be a good idea to replace the thermostat and thermostat gasket. Clean the lifters and pushrods. Check the rocker arm springs. make sure the valves are clean and seating is good. check or replace the valve guides as needed(this is usually the cause of oil burn at startup). If this is a aluminum head and the engine overheated. Have the head checked out to make sure it wasn't damaged from the heat(Aluminium heads are usually used for competition racing engines). Depends on what your wanting to do after you remove the head(replace, swap, rebuild). Maybe buy a book on your type of engine(chilton, haynes) main thing is to do it right the first time. this type of project is not for the mechanically challenged. Good luck!!!
If the Buick 305 is really a Chevy 305, then the motor mounts will interchange with a Chevy 350.
Remove the belt, Remove one bolt out of the fulcrum part of the tensioner and remove the tensioner; reverse the precedure.
the 1986 Chevy truck 305 HO produced 180 hp
Oldsmobile used Chevy 305's. 76 350 rocket 77 305 Chevy
no I respectfully disagree. I am running 305 Chevy TBI heads on my 1971 Chevy 307 and all is very well.
A Chevy 305 is not a transmission it is a motor. If you mean a Chevy turbo 350 then the answer would be 3 different forward speeds and reverse.
Yes they interchange
Seriously? A 305 Chevy motor does not take "transmission fluid"! The transmission takes transmission fluid, and the motor takes oil. The 305 should hold 5 quarts of oil I believe. As for the transmission, I believe that all depends on what transmission you have. Seriously? A 305 Chevy motor does not take "transmission fluid"!

It will bolt right in but, the "Y" pipe on the exhaust system from the 305 will not fit on to the 350.
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, a 283, 305, 307, 327 etc will fit. You should be able to use small block motor mounts from 1966
A 5.0L would equal a 305 cu.in.
no, it's internal. same as a 350.
I going for gas mileage on my 82 Chevy pickup. Should I rebuild the stock 305 or a 350ci. Remember looking for the best mileage.
it is located on the bottom end of the head
