go to lordco and you can buy tranny adapters and engine mounts( I think)

lordco or advanced adapters. not nessarily cheap, but easiest way to go.

285/305 are good high revving engines, i always liked em in the cars. a guy i know had a 285 in a 81 toy, he had a hoot with it, but he liked smoke shows and blew a bunch of rear axle shafts so he sold it. said in 4 wheel drive all 4's would light up on 31's

lots of work but can be done, i have been working on mine for some time now,
locating parts and peices takes a while. if your able to fab stuff you"ll be fine ,
it would be cheaper to buy one already done , but hard to fine ones that are not hack jobs.or fix your sell it and buy a chevy

I think you mean 283s and 307s the 307 has the same stroke as a 327 with the same bore as the 283. The 305 is the same stroke as a 350 with a smaller bore and weaker connecting rods so the 305 won't rev any better than a 350.

Also for a V8 swap into a toy it is my understanding that it is easier to fit a 302 ford in them. Narrower block and the distributor is in the frt so no firewall clearance issues.

Advance Adapters for all your swap needs. You can get a bellhousing to for a Toy standard tranny to bolt to a 302, or and adapter to bolt to the Chevy auto.

im not going to make the 305 a power horse its just going to be about 200 hp-250hp so i dont think itll be that bad

why waste your time.... 305 is a turd and a v8 is a good way to ruin a perfectly good toy.

I have to agree with Trevyota, a headgasket sounds WAY cheaper!

there not that bad of a motor... everyone bitches about the headgasket... sure that valid...

a good swap for a 3.0.... put in the 3.4 same mounts... uses some of the acessories off the 3.0... and you stay toyota...

throw a lil trd on top of her.. you'll make just as much power as a 305 no problem.
