Investigating Chevy 305 burning oil at idle
[[UPDATE: after wasting money on valve stem seals without fully
investigating what the issue definitely was, i finally took off the right
side valve cover which has NEVER been taken off..i found the the rear oil
drain hole (theres 2, 1 in the front 1 in the back of the head) was plugged
with fiber which is from the 10 year old air filter i had been using..so
basically the ENTIRE valve cover was filling with oil force feeding oil
into the cylinders. Goes to show, routine maintenance is not a joke..i
figured an air filter is an air filter, but i guess not lol.After 10
minutes of idling the Exhaust will
start making blue smoke and it looks kinda like "Uncle Buck" lol. It VERY
rarely smokes when i drive, only when i take off.
No Choke Chevy 305 Fall Cold Start
Cold starting the Chevy 305 engine in my '81 Olds with non-working choke.
Starts OK after lots of pumping, but needs to run sometime before
Chevy 305 Comp Cam Idle
85 Chevy Longbed 2WD with a rebuilt 305. Comp Cam. Edelbrock Intake,
headers and Edelbrock Carb.
Start the 81 Olds with Chevy 305 after sitting 5 months
Nothing beats the sound of a V8 in the morning. This car is a 1981
Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser, that originally had a 350 diesel, but that
engine probably broke (like they always do), and somebody put in this 305
Chevy, runs great!
kennys' killer 305
Kenny joe fires up his rebuilt 305 with r/v cam sounds good and for sale...
1982 Pontiac Firebird TransAm LG4 305 to 350 TBI (throttle body injection) swap - second test start
We took a 350 with TBI from a 1989 suburban for this project. The car
didn't come with an engine or transmission.
Stages in this swap:
1. Fitting & Pre-Install Evaluation
2. Installation of Engine and Transmission
3. Wiring Harness Adaptation & Integration
4. Wiring Harness Verification
5. Test Start & System Verification
6. Wiring Harness Cleanup
7. Engine Compartment Cleanup
8. Post-Install Evaluation
This video is at the first portion of step 5, the test start. This proves
that most of the system is working properly. The next part is to check for
computer codes and fix any problems that are found. In this case the O2
sensor is not yet connected causing a Check Engine Light (CEL) or Service
Engine Soon light (SES).
Yes the wiring is messy for now, but why clean it up until you know it
For an engine swap like this you need both engine and computer wiring
harnesses and connector diagrams for both computers and bulkhead/firewall
