real easy, simple question:

I have a 305 v8, and a blazer that had a 350 but no longer has an engine. I plan to mate them together, obvioustly.

Is the flywheel, clutch, and bellhousing same on a 305 as a 350?

For what it's worth, you could even bolt up a 4.3 V6 to that trans too.....same basic design, 305 and 350 used essentially the same block, heads, some internals n whatnot, the 4.3 V3.....GM took a 350 and whacked off two cylinders........very interchangable stuff

Another point here, can I use a 350 flywheel on a 4.3? As in balance ect?

You'll have to get the motor mounts for a 350 (if you haven't already) and bolt them on the 305. Did that swap on my truck years ago, mine had a bad 350 so I just swapped those mounts. I used the flywheel and starter that were on the 305 for mine, no problems.
