305 Chevy running on Engine Stand - Test Run
Finally got home built portable engine stand up and running. Stock 78 305. Should be putting in next week, big ol' comp cam and double hump heads to see if i can spin a bearing.
Monte Carlo SS 305 H.O. engine install part 4 - it's done!
Finally got the engine finished up and running. All I have left is to replace the fuel tank and it should be a driver. Had some problems getting it to run with fuel pump sourced fuel. Ended up having to take the top of the Q-jet carb and loosening up the float (it sat unused for 14 years!). Now all is well.
Disassembling the 305 Chevy
I pulled my old 305 from the 1985 Caprice apart this fall. We got to this point, and haven't bothered to re visit the project, since my new truck has been taking up all of my time.
