Computer controlled to standalone

I'm replacing the computer controlled, 4 barrel 305 in my car with a "standalone" 350. Anyone know what problems I may encounter? How will I keep the "check engine" light from coming on? (just remove the bulb?) I'll be getting a set of gauges (oil press, water temp, alt. charge) so I'm not too concerned about the warning lights because I can moniter the gauges.

Also, the 350 has a mechanical oil press sending unit and the 305 was electrical. How do you replace a mechanical sending unit with an electrical one?
