Can a Chevy 305 engine bolt in place of a 1985 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme 307 engine?


Yes and no.
Yes it could bolt in place, but it could take a lot of work changing every thing over.
Exhaust, transmission, wiring, cooling, and so on.
Probably nothing except the crossmember would be the same for both engines.

Just installed a holley 600 carb on a stock 305 Chevy truck 4 barrel is opening up but motor is bogging down should I go with hotter plugs advance timing or what?


Actually a Holley 600 is just a little too much for a stock 305. It would be better suited for a stock 350. You might try to lean the mix down a bit and reset the float a little higher. Holleys are good about dumping excssive fuel into the cylinders thus causing pitting on the cylinder walls. It would not hurt to advance the timing a couple degress then.

How to install 350 chevy frame mounts in a 1985 chevy impala


The 1985 Impala came standard with the Chevrolet 305 V8. All Chevrolet small block V8's from 265 cubic inches to 400 cubic inches from 1957 to about 1989 used the same block with almost no difference in the castings, so the motor mounts should fit from one block to the next. If you are trying to swap in a 350 newer than 1989, then the motor mounts are different, and you will have to have them fabricated by a local welder, machine shop, or perhaps the best, a local short-track race car driver/builder. Those guys can build anything.

I am going from a qudrajet carb to an Edelbrock 600 with manual choke. I am not sure how the linkage switches over. I am working on a 1985 chevy 4x4 with a sb 350


If your staying with the stock intake manifold the edelbrock wont fit unless you install a adapter plate.And i would advise you not to install it will not seal properly.I would install a edelbrock intake manifold and carburetor as a matched set.You can purchase a edelbrock carburetor and intake manifold from advance auto parts that's designed for your vehicle.

Horse power and torque of a 350 cu/in 1985 chevy suburban motor


I'm not sure of the exact horsepower because of a lot of variable like condition of the engine and age and fuel system and transmission. But if this vehicle as a 350 in it, It will be fine to pull your boat. Even if it was a 305 it would be o.k

I have a 1985 Cadi LIMO rear wheel drive


yes 350 will bolt up but if you are looking for good gas mileage and decent power i would go with a multi-port 3.1 beretta v6 just as much power as stock 350 but better gas mileage..
