84 is pre tbi so there shouldn't be a problem. If the 305 is running fine I
would just drop her on in and not worry about it. While it is out though
now would be a great time to change any bad seals or gaskets. The size
difference isn't enough to really even notice. The older 305's were dogs
but hell if it works use it.
Especially since it threw a timing chain. 8mpg, and no balls anywhere.
My current 305 K5, it has some little cahones.
What do I with all the extra hoses and crap on the 1984 that the 72'
doesn't? Also: 1984 4bbl rochester or 2bbl holley?
If you had read closer, or maybe if I had been more clear.
I gave the NG a choice of a 4bbl Rochester or a 2bbl holey. I only want to
buy oil for this FOUR DOOR SEDAN. The parts I listed I already have, I'm not
buying a 600CFM (way to high) anything for a 305 that I only suspect is in
good shape (after all the truck it came out of went to the graveyard).
Put the Quad on it if possible. Set up correctly get good mileage as
long as you keep your foot out of it. It will also give you better
control and allow you to keep all the factory parts. If your in a
state/Country where emissions testing is done you need to keep all the
stuff off the 84 since it is the year of the engine that matters in a
swap. For instance if you were putting a 74 engine into a 84 it would
have to meet 74 standards. if the 84 is going into the 74 the engine
still must meet 84 standards. Makes it a pain but that is the law.

Basically if it came form the factory, you're fine. a good example of
this would be a car from florida with extremely dark window tint on
everything but the windshield, you'd have no trouble getting it
inspected in Maine (where you can't have any tint on the front 3
windows (windshield and side glass)) as long as you can show it came
from the manufacturor that way. but if it came from a tint shop, it'd
have to go before it'd pass inspection.
