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.
1986 Chevy 305 V8 PARTIAL ENGINE OVERHAUL
***I realize I didn't need to torque the timing cover bolts down, I just
did it for the vid, also the start up at the end of the vid was NOT the
first start up.*** This is a 1986 Chevy C10. We only did a partial
overhaul, just a new cam, lifters, water pump, timing chain, gears, a new
gas tank and different 4-barrel carb was also installed, and just some
other smaller parts. Thanks for watching and please subscribe
Engine rebuild part 1
This series is available on DVD Here is the link
We are rebuilding a GM 350 5.7 engine. Now in this particular case we
are also going to upgrade the engine to a 383 6.0 This is called
building a "stroker" motor. In other words we are increasing the "stroke"
of the engine which increased the torq & horsepower.
If you are able & wanting to rebuild an engine, this video should give you
a good overview of what to do. If you are having someone else build an
engine for you, you will be able to see what's involved in the process

305 Chevy running on engine stand - test run - pt3
Finally got the comp extreme 4x4 cam put in. Also put in gear drive. The
gear drive was a cheap pro comp unit, I checked it againest the stock set
and 2 double rollers and the timing mark were off. They had the number 1
piston already headed down the tube and the cam still retarded about a
degree. And that was with the 5 degree advanced key. It was almost zero, so
I ran it. Did not like whatso ever. Seem to have real bad harmonics, just
ran real bad. So I put the new double roller on and rolled with it. Plus I
added a 650 double pumper, in place of the 600 vac secondary. And added two
spacers. Plus I did a re-curve kit on the distributor. So all in all, Stock
305 2 brl maxed out at 5950 rpm went to a 650 Double Pumper Comp Cam Double
hump heads, double roller timing chain and now maxes out at 6950 rpm. Dont
know anything else to do with it but sell it. All comments welcome.
