Can you put 1985 Chevy heads on a 1999 Chevy block?
How do you replace the head gasket located on a 2000 Chevy Camaro 3.8L?
You must label and disconnect all plug wires and other wires in the way of getting to the intake manifold, valve covers, and head/heads. Then you disconnect the air intake/plenum, and intake manifold. Then remove the valve covers. Then remove the manifolds and the head. Do not attempt this without a Chiltons or Haynes book/detailed instructions, unless you are a certified mechanic.

Parts of cylinder block?
A bare cylinder block does not contain any other parts. Assuming it is an internal combustion crankshaft/camshaft style engine it should have the following: cylinders crankshaft journals camshaft journals mating surfaces for necessary components such as cylinder heads, oil pan, exhaust and intake manifolds, and etc. drilled/tapped holes for the necessary fasteners (bolts/studs) other holes/passages as needed Note: Cylinder heads usually contain the exhaust and intake manifold mating surfaces.

Where are the intake and exhaust valves located on a 305 Chevy engine?
On a 1981 cutlass 305 intake manifold is it possible to change with a 350 intake manifold?
the manifolds should be the same for the 350and 305. be careful, however about the year of your manifold, older manifolds have the four center holes drilled at the same angle as the heads and the rest of the holes, newer manifolds have the four holes drilled straight up and down, and the two are not interchangeable

Will a 89 350 bolt up to vortec heads?
Yes an 89 350 will bolt up to original Vortec heads. However, Vortec heads have an 8 bolt inatke manifold that is different from the standard 89' intake. Its worth mentioning that the intake manifolds changed in 1986. Prior to 1986 all intake manifolds for a sbc had 12 bolts. These 12 bolts all secured the intake to the head at the same angle. In 1986, or primarily in 1987 the intakes 4 center bolts were changed to a steeper angle. With the introduction of the vortec head came a new 8 bolt intake eliminating the 4 center bolts. If you plan to use Vortec heads on any V8 be it a 305,327,350 or bigger, you will need a Vortec intake manifold as well. You can also buy an after market intake to run a carburetor on a set of Vortec heads in place of the TBI injection.
When looking at a v6 3100 engine how do you tell what is the intake and what is the exhaust?
The intake portion of the 3100 starts where the throttle body (where the accelerator cable attaches) attaches to the plenum (upper intake), below the plenum is the lower intake. The exhaust manifolds are between where the Exhaust pipe connects to and attaches to the cylinder head. The first answer is great, but here's some more as I have just finished replacing the intake manifolds on my 1997 Pontiac GrandAm with the 3.1L engine. First of all, this is a two-piece manifold which is unusual, the first one I've see like this.... This engine is a 60 degree V configuration, and the lower intake manifold bolts directly onto both heads, essentially filling in the center of the "V", and providing air/fuel to the head intake ports. Its mostly obscured by the upper intake manifold that bolts directly to the lower portion. The upper and lower intake manifolds are cast aluminium. The exhaust manifolds are each on the outside of the "V", and bolt directly to the heads. They are cast iron (usually rusty iron color), and are covered by silver sheet-metal heat shields. There is a crossover pipe that connects them to a collector which connects to the rest of the exhaust system.
